    Hi ,

    I am currently facing an issue, where I am not able to access/delete or even move the directory created in C:\.
    Whenever I create a new directory, it says I dont have permissions to it.
    I am trying to access with admin credentials, and it still fails.
    Although, if I do a right click and allow the permissions for everyone, and click on apply and save it lets me do it.
    However, I am still unable to delete the same.
    I need to go back to properties, and assign full control over the directory to delete the same forever.

    Can you guys kindly help me on this?

    Regards,
    Green Arrow

    This is unlikely to be malware related, I can move you to the correct section if you post what version of Windows you are using.

    So what operating system do you have? If you want help you will need to provide the proper information.
