permission required
When I try to delete program files, after several 'are you sure' prompts and
vista asking me if I started the action, then several more 'are you sure'
prompts, I get a message that I need permission for this action. There is
only one account on this machine as the owner with admin privileges. Who
gives the permission and how to I delete files?

Re: permission required
Hello,

permissions are set automatically with Vista. However, for some special
folders it seems that you don't have enough permission at the moment.
Try right-clicking the folder -> Properties -> tab "Security", and giving
all permissions to your user account (and adding permissions for the user
groups you belong to, e.g. "Users"). If that doesn't work, click "Advanced"
on the same page, go to the tab "Owner" and set yourself as the owner.

Greetings,
P. Di Stolfo

Hi Ruth,

Check to make sure that the program file is not listed in Task
Manager's (CTRL+SHIFT+ESC) "Processes" tab. If it is, then click on it
and click "End Process". You should be able to delete it now.

If not, you may need to take ownership of it first then delete it. This
tutorial will show you how.
