Delete strange write-protected files in C:

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
I have trouble deleting this folder in my C drive.

I tried going into properties and checking "allow access" boxes for my profile, but it still doesn't let me delete it. I even installed programs such as divfinst to delete it but doesn't let me.

My user profile is admin...

Check your security authority over the folder. Remove every single athority holder so nothing has authority on it. If it still wont delete it's time to check what you might have installed at the time it showed up. Also run antivirus, adaware, crapcleaner. Still cant get it then you might be rooted and its time to run combofix.
