Windows 7: Cannot delete .exe?

07 Aug 2012   #1

Windows 7 64-bit
Cannot delete .exe?


I recently downloaded Altera's Quartus II v12.0 free version for Windows. However, I have 64-bit, and this is only compatible with 32-bit. I somehow managed to install it (not that it works properly) but the .exe I downloaded to install the thing is really weird. It won't run, and I cant rename it, delete it, or go into properties without windows explorer crashing. I have never encountered anything like this before. How do I delete it/get it to work properly?

Have you tried a restore point to get rid of it (might fix it)??
