Can't remove 'Read Only' for C:/Windows/installer

Yeap, as per the title

Now I'm having problems installing java.

I'm logged into my only account, which is an admin account, and yet I can't remove the read-only thing from the folder. Please help.

This is related to the 'error 2203' problem when installing java

Try booting into safe mode, then take ownership of the folder, then have your way with it..
