    deleting hard drive files

    Hi,

    May we know what type of file are you trying to delete? Would it be Office documents, media files, or picture files? If you're trying to delete files for free some space on your device. We suggest to perform a Disc Cleanup. Kindly follow the steps below to
    perform the task:

    • Type in Cortana Disc Cleanup
    • Choose the files to delete
    • Click on "Clean up system files"
    • Click on Ok

    For any concerns, don't hesitate to get back to us.

    Regards.

    HELP!!! no matter what I do, I cannot delete that file...does anyone have any tricks or...

    How do I delete registry files?

    Does it matter if I deleted programs at:
    Go to Hkey_Current User> Software intead of "Local Machine"?

    Also, where can I check if programs listed there are legitimate? Isn't there a website to check the names of programs or applications?
