WINDOWS 7:"You require permission from the computer's administrator"


In my pc, i installed 64 bit version of windows 7 over windows 7 32 bit in disk partition 'C:'. This created a folder called, 'windows.old'.

I want to delete this folder as it is using some GBs of space in my HDD. But, I am unable to delete the folder. It shows an error - "You require permission from the computer's administrator to make changes to this file".

How do i delete this folder and that to permanently??????:-(:-(:-(:-(


Right click on the folder and select Properties. Under Security tab, create a rule for your user to have full rights to the folder and all sub folders. This may take some time to apply. After it is done, you can delete the folder.
