  1. Cant delete large file, "access denied"


    A couple years back I got Xbox game pass for my pc, and i installed Forza Horizons 5. I played it for a while and enjoyed it but then I ran out of game pass subscription. When i went to go uninstall it to free up some space it said it had uninstalled it fine and no longer displayed it as installed in the Xbox app. But the file was still there and the space was still taken by the file, it wasn't in apps and i couldn't uninstall it so i figured i would just delete the file, but it was annoying about it and i honestly don't really remember what i did after that, but now its corrupted and ive trie

    Denied Access to delete files

    Thanks for suggestions. I tried AVG Remover but it found nothing; probably because I had already deleted the bulk of the files. I also tried Command and Safe Mode but both gave Denied message. So the question remains how do I get access to delete files? Would changing to MS login at Start help?

    Denied Access to delete files

    I am experiencing the infamous Blue Screen irregularly and I suspect from reading posts it is linked to AVG Internet Security product. I bought this but later canceled it and thought I had uninstalled it. However later I found that the uninstallation left a lot, if not all, the files behind. Windows, Ccleaner etc. showed the program as being deleted. I subsequently searched AVG and then tried deleting all files found. I am the only user and the administrator; I do not enter my MS password at start-up. I have managed to delete a large no. of files but I am left with several where each time I try to delete I get a message "File access denied - you need to provide administrator permission to delete this file" I click on Continue but I am still denied access.

    How do I get access to delete these files?

    Denied Access to delete files

    Boot to Safe Mode or even to a Command prompt. But before that, I'd try AVG's own remover tool.
