Windows.old - cannot delete
I just updated to Win 7 (Pro) from Vista (Business)
It took a couple of goes, as I neglected to uninstall Kaspersky during the first pass.
Now I have 'Windows.old' directory under C: which I am unable to delete (dated and time-stamped at about the time as my first attempt).
When I try to delete it, it complains that 'this item is no longer under C: '
How can I delete this entry from the C: directory listing? (If it really does not exist any more, why is it showing up as a directory?)
PS I have seen the tutorial here:
Windows.old Folder - Delete
it does not work for me.
