Sup guys, I encountered the BSOD from LUsbFilt.SYS which comes with the Logitech driver software. Stopped using my Logitech products due to this mess, but the last two times the BSOD came with the accompanying memory dump, I was ingame playing Lord of the Rings Online and it caused some sort of crash bug to start happening in the game. I went back to the last clean restore point, and now am trying to get rid of LUsbFilt.SYS completely.

The active instance of the program came off cleanly, but there was an inactive version in the Repository left behind from the last time I formatted my drive (Ultimately also because of complications from the LUsbFilt.SYS) but because the computer doesn't recognize that as being mine due to Vista's permission protocols (or whatever) it won't let me get rid of the items in the Repository file, which are dead weight anyways regardless.

So, how do I successfully and safely delete the repository file even though I no longer have permission due to the format?

Not sure why you want to do this, but taking ownership of the folder should help.

These are XP directions, but it's the same thing:

I appreciate the response a ton, but there doesn't seem to be any documentation concerning this in Vista. I'll try to see what I can come up with given your description.

Thanks, that did it. I was just trying to get rid of one file, and it's gone now.

I'll flag this one solved :D
