dont have permission to delete folders/ programs

Posted: 05-18-2007, 08:58 PM
I had some problems isntalling applications, so i needed to delete folders
again but when i tried to do that a msg appears telling me that i dont have
permissions to do that and the deleted file get restored into its default
folder. (my OS is vista ultimate 32x (spanish) ive tired to trasnlate the
msg) I noticed that this only happens if the program was opened this session
before, its like if the file is opened somewhere at therefore cant be
deleted, same happened to me while tryeing to patch programs if i the program
got opened in some way after the installation the patch would tell me that
the file is being used by another program an therefore i cant be patched.
So only solution is to rebot the system which is really anoyeing me to do
after almost each install of each program, there are even some patch that
need to run the program inorder to patch them so its impossible to patch them
bcs i get the "is being used by another program msg"
Bcs of that im thinking its a security issue sth is blocking me from
modifiying programs.....

any ideas?
thx

If the message tells you that you cannot delete the file because it is open
by another process, then that is exactly the problem. Some program fails to
properly close the file. You may need to reboot, but at least log out, to
delete the file.

If that is the message it is not a security problem.
