  1. Unable to delete files or folders for non-system related files


    I have had issues with windows taking folder and file permissions from me for random and non-windows items like ShareX. I've tried looking online for answers but none of them have really given me the ability to regain ownership and make alterations to these files/folders. I have lost the ability to use certain programs cause of this, again like ShareX, tried to update it and found it was locked by permissions, now the folder is entirely useless and I can't reinstall the program because of this problem. Some of the things I've tried was through powershell in administrator mode I tried takeown, del, and remdir, none of which worked. I had a registry edit that added a shortcut to takeown in the context menu for explorer, still nothing. Any help with this would be greatly appreciated.

    Trouble deleting a folder

    Download norton commander for windows and try it. I`m using it for deleting those autorun.inf virus files that stuck to the USB drives or second non system partition. If no file is used from windows folder NC should erase it easy. And there is Hiren`s boot disk that you can download it is bootable and has volkov commander on it similar to NC and it runs in DOS and it will delete windows folder 100%. Or you can make USB stick bootable and use deltree command.
