I just bought a new laptop and am trying to use my speakers with it. The speakers run the a Scarlet 2i2 USB interface that comes with a driver disk to install. I installed the drivers but it still didn't work because they are out of date. So i went to the website to download the proper one but as it installs it says

An error occurred when trying to rename a file in the destination
MoveFile failed; Code183
Cannot create a file when that file already exists

I tried going into the sytems32 folder and deleting it but it literally won't let me! I am on the administrator account and I cant change ownership of the file either, it just won't let me!!! Please if anyone can help me that would be amazing, this is really getting annoying.

Try starting windows in safe mode.
You may be able to delete the file, or even successfully install the driver.
