post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Okay here's the deal: I have an 80 gig hdd i want for games it has a few on it right now and it also "had" xp on it... my question is how can I PERMENETLY delete these files? I can't just click delete on them 'cuz they won't go away. Any prog's out there? Here's what's left in the WINDOWS folder that won't go away...

Um... they look like uninstall files to me, not viruses. I would suggest one of two things. You can download programs like tune up utilities (www.tune-up.com) that has a permanent erase feature and will unload something from memory before trying to delete it , or you can right click on the folder or file and change the attributes away from "Read only" and "hidden". Uncheck those boxes and then try to delete.
