Can't delete files - says not Admin
I d/l a 4gb file, and uncompressed it. There is 1 image and 1 .doc file in
the folder. The image is corrupted and I want to delete both. When I go to
delete it says I don't have administrator priviliedges, but only have one
username and it's administrator. Furthermore, I have the UAC disabled and
still denied to delete.

Need Help!

RE: Can't delete files - says not Admin
This is really ***! I had to go into properties/security tab and add my
username to the permissions. This then allowed me to delete the file after I
gave myself permission, how dumb.
