  1. Files with no permission to delete


    So, I installed the Hitman Trilogy from XBox Game Pass and the install broke, showing an error 0x00000000. I've tracked it down to find that it's still partially installed in my D: drive in WindowsApps with one of the subsections of the game causing the error code 0x80073d12 and found I couldn't delete them. I've checked through the security settings and while the folder and files are owned by the Administrator User group the files are read & execute only, even for the group SYSTEM, and when I go to advanced settings to try to assign full control permissions so the files can be deleted,

    File permissions to delete file

    Windows is extremely confusing in its permissions and file ownership.*Sad

    If Taking Ownership of the files does not work, then the ACL and permissions are misconfigured.

    Permissions precedes the ownership, you can have ownership but incorrect permissions in accordance with the ACL Access Control Lists (Windows).

    Microsoft - How Permissions Work

    I suggest that you open powershell (Search > type powershell > Right click > run as admin) and execute this command:

    Code:
    This command restores permissions to default for all files contained within C:\ quietly.

    Followed by this command once completed:

    Code:
    This command restores full permissions to the Administrators on the computer, which I presume you are an Administrator.

    And reboot the computer, and finally attempt to delete the file after attempting to retake ownership.

    If that does not work, then I suggest using a third party utility known as UnlockIT:
    Downloads - UnLock IT

    And download, install. Ensure you select customized installation.

    Right click the folder that contains the files or the files individually that you would like to delete, and follow as here:

    Then this should delete all files you right clicked upon after restarting the system.

    You should not run into issues regarding permissions after this, and if you do, post again and I'll look into it.

    Side note: often times malware tends to hijack a system and fluff itself in permissions that benefit itself.
