Can't delete old folders
I recently changed my OS to Windows 8 to see what all the fuss was about.
I have returned to 7 but the Folders that 8 created can't be deleted.
When pressing the delete function it appears to be recycling the folder as requested.
After a few minutes it gives up a box that states "You'll need to provide Administrator permission to delete Folder" The options are Cancel & Skip, or Continue.
On pressing continue it continues to run for a couple of minutes before another pop up box appears stating "Need permission from philip-PC/admin to make changes.
This is me! There are no other users on my PC.
I have two of these files and they are taking up approx 20Gb which I could really use for better things.
Is there anyone who could help?
