    Hello,

    I am using Windows XP Service Pack 2.

    I recently uninstalled Verizon Internet Service program because I switched to Comcast. However, I noticed that there are a lot of verizon files still on my hard drive. After doing a file search 85 files were revealed that are still on the system. When I try to delete I get this error code:


    Cannot delete file. Cannot read from the source file or disk.

    How do I permanently delete these files?

    I am certain they are assoicated with the installation of the Verizon Internet Program.

    How about deleting them in Safe Mode?
