Windows 7: How to destroy 3 files

How to destroy 3 files

Please note: My ( C: ) drive is an SSD and the ( X: ) drive is a 1 TB internal HD.

The files are:


There is no uninstall program offered in Windows' Right-Click menu, and Delete there states "The action can't be completed because the file is open in NitroUpdateService" (which is one of the files I am trying to remove). I have tried getting my Antivirus AVG Cloudcare to permanently shred it but it refused, saying that the file is "opened in another program", which it can't be. Nitro Pro 10 converts PDFs to editable form. I deleted its very many associated files but these 3 remain. I am trying to get an answer from Nitro but no luck.

The reason I want to remove them is part of a cleaning program on my internal HD ( X: ) where Windows is refusing to include a System Image in its Backup and Restore routine, saying that the drive cannot be used because "A system image cannot be saved on a drive that your computer boots from or that Windows is installed on." Neither of these two features apply to ( X: ) It has only Documents, Pictures etc. I suspect that the 3 files might be the cause.

How can I get rid of them please?

Its OK. I have succeeded in deleting them, and am now doing a backup. (I discovered Start > Control Panel > Programs > Uninstall a program. I must explore Control Panel more.

Windows 7 Updates destroy MBR
After a lot of tests it is obvious that at least one of the latest following Windows 7 updates destroys the MBR of the Hard Drive. It is up to Microsoft to help make explanations and to withdraw it. KB890830 KB915597 KB3013455 KB3023562 KB2952664 KB3004394 KB3006137 KB3021917

Destroy ALL HHD data
Hi, I'm going to sell some old hard drives. To keep my data off them i first used Ccleaner to clear all data with overwrite feature, then I did a low level format on the HHDs. Then I was unable to find any trace of data with DiskDigger. Is it enough?

Duplicate files hunt and destroy
I have a LOT of music. For some reason, iTunes (the only player I've ever used) feels the need to create duplicates of files whenever I change computers or iTunes overrides my automatic update disable. As you might imagine, I have quite a few repeated files taking up 3-6MB a piece that I want to...
