Ive Tried. Impossible to Delete!

Q: Ive Tried. Impossible to Delete!

OK..

I have a folder/file deleting problem..
On an XP/sp2 NTFS system.
My error states...cannot delete file: cannot read from source file or disk
This problem occurs when I try to delete a folder.

If i try deleting the folder that contains the problem folder i get this..
cannot delete Contains Profanity Fake-NAME : cannot find specified file.
(note: thats not the real name)



How this file happend to get on my cpu...
I just bought a new HD and I was copying all of my songs from my iPod. I was using a nifty little tool to back up (and organize) a couple thousand mp3s on my new HD. The transfer process was halted when windows encountered an invalid file name error. I think the file contained a ":".




I have tried...
safe mode method.
cmd-manual deleting method.
MoveOnBoot method.
I have even done all of those methods with the HD booted as a slave.

NO LUCK

any suggestions plz reply.

Preferred Solution: Ive Tried. Impossible to Delete!

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

A: Ive Tried. Impossible to Delete!

Here is a simple procedure

Sometimes you want to delete a file but when you do so an error message pops and tells you it cannot be done. Do successfully delete such a file do the following:

Open a Command Prompt window and leave it open.

Close all open programs.

You now need to close EXPLORER.EXE. The proper way to shutdown Explorer is to raise the "Shut Down Windows" dialog (select "Shut Down..." from the start menu), hold down CTRL+SHIFT+ALT and press the CANCEL button. Explorer will exit cleanly.

Note: The <CTRL+SHIFT+ALT> at the 'Shut Down Windows' dialog method of closing Explorer is built into Explorer. (It was specifically designed so that developers writing Shell Extensions could get Explorer to release their Shell Extension DLLs while debugging them).

Go back to the Command Prompt window and change to the directory where the undeletable file is located in. At the command prompt type DEL <filename> where <filename> is the file you wish to delete.

Go back to Task Manager, click File, New Task and enter EXPLORER.EXE to restart the GUI shell.

Close Task Manager.

Hello, I am having issues on deleting files that I do not want on my pc any longer. The error says its being used by another program and i have tried Unlocker and several other programs to try and get rid of these files. One program said the files were located in my WINDOWS folder, and another said the files didn't exist. I have ran multiple spyware programs to no avail. I TRY running several different anti virus scans but when it reaches these malicious files the scan does not progress any further.

I am positive there are programs running in the background but I have no idea what they are. Also, every time i restart windows some weird bleep noise happens. I could really use some help from someone educated on these matters.

I download a lot of files and folders from the web, and heres one of the main reasons I find windows more of a pain to use than linux -- NO WAY TO FORCE CHMOD 777 on folders....

I've been cleaning out all the old unnecessary files, and I've come across a folder that simply wont allow itself to be deleted.

within this folder there are several other folders in a hierarchy, and at each level, they are all read-only. I tried removing the read only tab, but they REFUSE to change from read only (and I AM the administrator), and the files at the bottom of the hierarchy are all .gif (and other?) image files. None of these even have Delete available as an option when right clicked, and if I circle a bunch of them and click delete nothing happens.

if I try to delete the folder they are in, it gives me ACCESS DENIED.

If Windows XP wasnt so gay, and used the FAT32 filesystem I could just make a linux bootdisk, boot from there, mount /dev/hda1, chmod 777 and delete it from there, but NTFS mounting support is still sketchy to this day.

any way I could forcibly remove this folder? None of the files within it are being used with any processes, it looks like some of them (or all) are either corrupt, or insisting on being read-only for one reason or another...

I recently did a lossless re-install of Windows 7 on my machine, which placed my old data onto a folder called "Windows.Old", allowing me to totally restore everything. However, doing this generated a few folders that I can't seem to do anything with. I was able to remove most of them through the use of the Delete Invalid File application, but not even that is able to clear the last two folders:

My old Users folder, and my old ProgramData folder.

No matter what I do, these files are totally locked. I was able to move them to the desktop, but beyond that, they are being stubborn. Every time I try to delete them normally, I get the following message:



This is after I get a popup to allow administrative rights on the aforementioned folder. No matter what I do, this message will always pop up and bar me from deleting the folders.

Here's a list of all the things I've tried:

Changing file ownership.
Deleting individual files within the folders.
Disabling User Account Control notifications.
Fiddling with administrative details.
Deleting the folders through the use of Delete Invalid File.
Moving the folders to new locations.

None of these work. I can't remove the files at all. They're stuck, sitting on my desktop, taunting me as they use up my already tightly constrained HDD space.


How do I get rid of these pesky old files?

A:Impossible to delete leftover folders

Try Unlocker:
Download Unlocker 1.9.2 - FileHippo.com

edit: No need to use the Direct Download link on FileHippo's website. They abandoned that. Just use the green rectangle shown in the screenshot below.
Just be sure to uncheck the other junk it offers to install:

Once installed...
...right click on the folder of interest
...select Unlocker from the context menu
Deal with the User Account Control - if needed.

Once Unlocker opens...
If nothing is locking the folder(s)...
...select Delete from the drop down menu in the lower left part of the window
...then click on the button named OK.

If something is locking the folder(s)...
...select Delete from the drop down menu in the lower left part of the window
...then click on the button named Unlock All.

Be careful. Unlocker is powerful and dangerous. You might want to uninstall it after using it.

Hi,

my friend asked me to enlarge his local disk with OS (don't have enough space on it). I have done it few times before with different computers - format neighbouring local disk, add requested space to the first one and create second local disk from the rest of the space. But it does not work with this computer, I cannnot erease, format, delete the neded disk. The option "Format" is grey in Disk Manager and when I tryed Acronis, it said it deleted the disk, but it only makes the used space smaller. Do you have any idea how to solve it? (I would prefere to not to reinstall it).
Thank you

My computer crashed a while ago so I reinstalled 7. Now I have a folder in C: that has no name and is impossible to delete. My hard drive is small and this folder literally takes up more than half of it.

The error is that I need permission from myself to delete it. I have already looked at many threads and tried to solve this but nothing works. I already have assigned permission and ownership to myself and tried deleting it from safe mode. It theoretically has data from a previous install but I can't access anything in the folder. I just want to get rid of it.

Here's some printscreens:

Welcome Matt to the windows 7 forums.

Of course you are logged on as administrator?

If it still can't be deleted then I could be time for a format and re-install.

There are probably some bootable CD's that might allow you to delete the folder
and it's contents. I Recommend that you search the site for linux cd's that will allow you to boot into linux and then you should be able to remove the directory.

Maybe someone else can remember the name of the bootable cd that will allow y ou to delete the directory.
Or, have you tried to boot your windows 7 original disk and the going to the repair option and dropping to the command prompt and removing the directory that way"?

Sounds like you may have an OEM System Builder versions of Windows 8. It is intended to be installed by someone or a company building a new computer that is to be resold. That particular version includes a personal use license which allows anyone to buy an OEM System Builder copy of the software and install it on a (new or old) PC that is intended for personal use. It should have come with an installation key.

I have a folder in my external terabyte that appeared some time ago. I can not delete it with any software. I tried to delete with DOS and it says all the same. The problem is that it will not let me downgrade it to a write-able format. It seems to be locked in READ ONLY status. I have attempted to take ownership of the drive and the files, but I can not get rid of it. When I first noticed it, it was random letters. When I tried to delete the file it turned into many many "Z's". When I ran the DOS delete protocol it changed into 6 "Z's"; with in that folder is a empty folder called "Update". Since then I have not been able to do anything about it. I don't know what to do. I even downloaded a program called Delete on Boot, and still no success. I have been coming here for about a year when I caught the Rogue Internet Security 2010. It was since then, 12/30/09 the day that i reformatted to yield to the virus's victory that the file first appeared in the external hard drive. I am wits end and I know someone out there can help me.

Is there any way to stop Virtu Monde popups? Somehow, I have become infected. Nothing seems to stop this creature. I have NIS installed. It doesn't help. I have Windows Defender installed. It doesn't help. My settings are set to block all popups. It doesn't help. Spyware Doctor will remove Virtu Monde a hundred times a day, but it always keeps comming back. I don't want to remove Virtu Monde a hundred times a day. I want to stop it from placing popups on my computer in the first place. Is this possible. If so, how do I do it?

Thank you in advance,

Hello likekinds

Spyware Doctor is not cleaning it all out.

The only way to totally get rid of it is by using HijackThis

You should post a HijackThis log. The experts on the forum there will clean it all up for you

Hey guys it's me again with my annoying and those that seem to be impossible-to-fix-problems.

Well 3 months ago i bought an AMD 5600+ Dual Core and i had lots of problems since then, believing it was defective, i wrote to AMD support and requested an RMA. My replacement arrived today. It fixed LOTS of random crashes and my computer was able to boot up properly with both rams placed on in dual channel. I went to play on Soulstorm, it crashed, sometimes half way through a game or sometimes about 5 minutes into the game. I went on another game which is Company of Heroes, it crashed too.

The only reason i tested these 2 games was because they crashed most of the times when i had the defective processor.I thought it was the RAM but i thought it wouldn't make any sense because while waiting for my replacement to arrive, i put in my old AMD Athlon 3500+ and it worked fine with EVERY SINGLE games so it couldn't be the RAM and it can't be the replacement either. Not knowing what else to do, i took one stick of ram out, and guess what? It worked like a charm ! I really have no idea what's going on inside but if anyone had been through this or anyone who knows how to fix please help and....ermm if it works you'll be able to rest assured that a person on earth is grateful and just wants to kill you with hugs XD

Hi! I'm new here -- noticed that a few people had the same problem I'm having with IE Pop-Ups, so I thought I'd look for some help. Spyware scans and pop-up stoppers couldn't cut it and my virus scanner finds nothing wrong.

Though I can only check back here every now and then, and not on the weekends (I apologize in advanced for slow replies), I was hoping that someone might have some ideas on where to go to fix this!

Thanks for your time!

Hey,

So, ever since I got the update for it in Windows Update, like a few months ago, I could never install IE9 on my computer. I have tried every possible means to install it.

-Download the modified (B00IE8/IE9) package
-Download the 32Bit (x86) Upgrade package
-Using Windows Update

And after multiple attemtps, I'm still opening IE8. Don't get me wrong, I have Google Chrome and Firefox, but I would like to have everything on this computer upgraded so I don't need to look at it in Windows Update.

Any ideas/suggestions?

Hello boys and girls. About one year ago, my 500GB Western Digital MyBook hard drive died when I unplugged it from my motherboard. It lived a long life. It was time for it to die. I figured maybe a power surge killed it since I didn't "Safely remove the hardware". The computer it died on was built by myself. It was an Asus motherboard and a Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit OS. I was convinced that my data was lost, so I bought a 500GB Toshiba Canvio portable USB drive in the color black. I plugged it into a rear USB 2.0 port. It was recognized for about three seconds, and then Windows displayed a yellow popup from the bottom right corner of the taskbar saying "The device has malfunctioned". A new hard drive? Come on. I brought it downstairs to my dads Vista machine, and it worked just fine. I scratched my head, and for kicks, I tried my "dead" MyBook on the same machine. It worked! I could see all my data!

After this, I figured it was a bad motherboard. Since none of the ports on the computer were working with it. (Mind you, mice, flashdrives, printers, keyboards, hubs, etc. were all functioning fine on the system). It was ONLY mass storage USB devices that were not working. I waited about a year and built a new computer. New EVERYTHING. Windows 7 OS, Asus motherboard, and all that good stuff. I was so excited to finally be able to use my USB hard drive again. I missed my data. But... It didn't work. It makes the usb "Bee-boop" but will no... Read more

When opening the ACT program on a windows XP I get a message that says, "Application has generated an exception that could not be handled. Process ID=0x798(1944), ID= 0x79c(1948)." then it asks if I want to use debugger to figure out the problem and so I'll click yes and then it says that the debugger is missing a component. Not only this the computer is constantly going into BSOD often times for "missing registry components". The memory is a little too small for all of the business programs put on the computer. I've ran at least four different types of spyware and virus removers in safe mode, they remove a few small spyware ads from caselmedia but there is never any kind of virus detected on the computer. Please help me out, I would really appreciate it if someone out there knows what to do. Thanks a bunch.

That is to say an eisa part for recovery, second part C: for vista premium and a third one for datas.

I've downloaded seven on the microsoft website and burn it with nero 7 and imagburn.

Noone works correctly, the best is that one i've burned with imagburn. speed 2.4 on an rw and 4 with an r

Each time i try to install seven, i've got the install page, i press "' install now"', and i received that beautifull message ..

"' windows couldt not collect information ( for os image ) in the specefied image files ( install.wim ) does not exist "'

I've checked my iso disc and the "' install.wim "' really exist on the dvd.

An other detail, each time after pressing "' install now "' and before the beautiful message my floppy tries to run.

If you have ideas or tips, they are welcome.

Sincerely yours,
Labougie,

A:impossible instal of seven

It is probably your installation media causing the problem..

This happens when it cannot verify the install.wim image on the DVD.

Try changing DVD discs brand, or using an external DVD rom drive. Perhaps yours is failing. If anything else fails, try installing from a USB stick.

Ok If anyone can help me with this i will be impressed

I play on an online game and i was recently key logged. I injected a DLL into the game, and inside the dll there was a key logger.
Only one virus scanner can identify it and i don't have the virus scanner (CPsecure).

The keylogger is called Troj.Gamethief.w32.wow.bwa

Heres how this thing works. Basically the key logger doesnt run UNLESS i inject it into my game.exe. So its not a threat to any other passwords, just my game one. I believe it sends my account/pass when i load it.

If i removed the dll the keylogger would be removed also, but i want to use this program so im trying to avoid that. The only solution i can come up with is using a hex editor to stop the function. But i am not familiar enough with hex editors to do this.

So i guess i need someone with hex editing knowledge to help me remove this. or someone who knows a program i havnt found on google yet.

Thanks

I've attempted to delete them with Unlocker but it requires to restart and after that they reapear again.
I've even Booted a Partition Manager an wipe/delete the partition on the card using all the 35 steps format it and it took me 4 hrs. but no use. They are still there.
And even formating my card on my other friend's phones/digital cameras and is no use. The files are still there.
The card contains 220MB of corrupted, cross-linked and virused files. I tried to scandisk it but after the scan and repair, the same exact files remained there. Its like the card has a secret reservoir which replaces back all the "bad" files.

Does your Internet keep dropping (Are you on wireless or something?).

Your topic suggests you can't download "anything", yet below you say you have trouble downloading "anything big". I'm assuming you can download small files?

You could always try using a download manager rather than using your browser to download the files. Search the forums for a thread on download managers if you want to find out more.

Leechget is what i use at present.
