Access denied Even though logged into Administrator account

Hello Guys,

Done a factory resetting,want to delete unwanted files,but couldn't.
Most of the thread here having the same problem are quite old and asked to start a new one.

I have tried sliding the bar lower on UAC,Tried to take the ownership of the particular folder but couldn't.

%windir%\System32\cmd.exe /k %windir%\System32\reg.exe ADD HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\System /v EnableLUA /t REG_DWORD /d 0 /f

%windir%\System32\cmd.exe /k %windir%\System32\reg.exe ADD HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\System /v ConsentPromptBehaviorAdmin /t REG_DWORD /d 2 /f

Tried the above comand prompt too

Pls advise me.

Some files are at a higher level than a user administrator level. For that you need to turn on the system administrator and take over that role. This is not recommended of course. I have done this on occasion but I always disconnect my network connection first. Paranoia keeps the viruses away.
