Its been a little while since i have been on geeks,,and first and foremost, i must say,,i love the changes to the forum design,,,very nice !
Right,, here goes...
I have managed to salvage a pc for a freind of mine,,the mb had supposedly fried but once i got my hands on this free gift i discovered that one of the memory modules was not sat correctly and once sat properly the pc booted up into xp no problems at all and is working flawlessly.
The 80gb hardrive is working fine and has some fairly decent software on it which i have decided to leave on there ,,meaning that i am not going to reformat it as planned ( was reformatted the end of may), just simply deleting as much of the previous owners files as possible.
I have deleted everthing that i can find successfully however there are a couple of folders that wont budge at all. The previous owners name was,,,lets say Gary...... and " garys documents " and "Garys saved files " just wont delete...
Everything within the folders is already gone so they are actually empty but they just wont go,,calling up an error box each time they start deleting
]... even renaming them doesnt work...
Any ideas how to remove them,,,,? ? I would like to give this pc to my friends this week,,but dont particulary want folders on there that they dont want.
Many thanks,,, kev
