i can't delete a folder in windows 7?

Hi,

I am new to this site so if i post on wrong section I'm sorry. Anyway i am having a big problem with my window 7 Pro. I can't delete some folder/files ect... If i try to delete the folder it say "You need permission to perform this action" but I'm the only administrator on this PC. I try looking everywhere but still no success finding what's the issue is here.

Any help will be greatly appreciated.

My guess would be that those are system files that could be owned by the trusted installer. Can you tell us wich files we are talking about.

Have you tried uninstalling the programs you don't want through:

Start > Computer > Uninstall or Change Program tab

Please post a screenshot of the error message.

Those are programs. Why don't you just uninstall them - best with Revo (advanced option)http://www.snapfiles.com/get/revouninstaller.html

Update: LOL, 1 second too late
