I had to do a clean installation of Windows Premium 32 bit again, and I want to install service pack 1.
But, there is a huge folder (55 GB!) from my old ProgramData folder named Microsoft, which is useless.
I want to delete it, but it says:

Could not find this item.
This is no longer located in C:\Windows.old\ProgramData. Verify the item's location and try again.

And it has try again... does not work... I installed all the Windows updates...
Does anyone know how I can delete this folder without that popping up :)
