    Hi All;
    Can't delete some files in EX Pro.
    Error message.....access denied
    I tried to do a delete at boot,still didn't work.
    Is there a good delete at boot out there?
    I used to use Norton Commander with Win98,boy do I miss it.
    Thanks for all the help in the past.

    Not sure if this will help, but download a program called UNLOCKER. Just be sure that the file(s) you want to delete aren't really necessary system files. This is an easy way to delete the wrong thing.

    Thanks Ron, nice try, that didn't work either.
    Nothing seems to work on these files.
    Says files might be write protected or in use.

    Hmm... Unlocker usually works for me. Where did you download it from?

    Do you think you can be infected?

    What are the names of the files?

    I'm trying to delete a bad install for a program called Spamkiller.
    It's an inconplete install.

    Did you try deleting in 'safe mode' ?

    Install it again then remove it.
