I have a windows installation in f:\windows that is my old windows 7. I try and delete the directory but it says i dont have write access to the files.
I have taken ownership of the files and folders, given myself full permissions on them too with no success
I have also tried using unlocker 1.9.0 and killbox to no avail

This is windows 7 64 bit.
Any suggestions? Thanks a lot!


EDIT: Killbox record.
doesnt seem to have done anything

Boot Linux from a CD and then delete the folder.
