Unable to delete folder

Hey guys. I had installed windows 8 RP on a separate partition. I wanted yo get rid of it so I removed its entry from boot menu but now I am unable to delete the folders left after it such as windows, windows.old and programfiles.

The error is that you need permission from trusted installer to delete file.

Hello HTB,

If you didn't want anything on the Windows 8 partition, then you should be able to just delete or format the Windows 8 parittion to delete everything on it.
