You need permission to perform this action

Posted: 12-30-2008, 04:51 AM

For the past couple weeks, I've noticed that some of the files I try t
delete claim that I don't have permission to delete them. First of all
all of the files on my computer have been installed on the only accoun
currently on the computer. Second, I have full administrative rights, s
there should be no problem deleting files from anywhere. I'm completel
stumped on how to get rid of any of them.

I'll provide whatever information you need to help me fix this.

First of all, I'm currently on a Dell Inspiron 1420 series running Hom
Premium. The folder I'm trying to delete is directly on the hard driv
(C:\). It's called Nexon (the company). In it, there is another folde
called Mabinogi (a game I once played, but would like to get rid of)
I've already uninstalled the game, which is why it's so confusing tha
the folder is even still there. In that folder is the undeletable file
called npkcmsvc.exe (an application file). I've tried searching throug
the properties of the file, and attempted to change some to give mysel
permission, but it just doesn't seem to work

Go into Safe Mode and try to delete the file from there. To get into Safe
Mode, repeatedly tap the F8 key as the computer is starting up. Use your
arrow key to select Safe Mode.

If that doesn't work, Unlocker is a free utility that can often help.
