I have low disk space on my computer so I am trying to uninstall a program. It's called microsoft frontpage. It's not in add remove programs. So I went in "desktop", "my computer", "Local Disk (c ", "program files", "microsoft frontpage", "delete". This message appears:
"Cannot delete bin: It is being used by another person or program.
Close any programs that might be using the file and try again."
I closed all the running programs. Then I tried again and the same message appeared.
What are the processes for frootpage in task manager? I did boot in safe mode. Then I deleted the folder. Then I restarted windows xp normaly and the folder is still there. How can I access the registry.
I meant "After deleting it and rebooting, does the folder contain all files that it used to contain?" If so, then System Restore is active (check System Properties, System Restore). You could disable it to save disk space, but then deleted system/program files can't automatically be restored. To delete the FrontPage folder permanently, System Restore should be disabled. You can (and probably should) enable it again after rebooting.
You access the registry at your own risks with RegEdit. You delete all keys that contain "FrontPage" or whatver Microsoft used. Backup your registry before deleting keys (right-click My Computer, Export).
