Not much there but I'm going to post the second part just so we cover all the basis.


Open Autoruns, click on "Logon" tab, and UN-check:


+ "Adobe ARM"




When done restart computer and then:



Download TFC by OldTimer to your desktop
  • Please double-click TFC.exe to run it. (Note: If you are running on Vista, right-click on the file and choose Run As Administrator).
  • It will close all programs when run, so make sure you have saved all your work before you begin.
  • Click the Start button to begin the process. Depending on how often you clean temp files, execution time should be anywhere from a few seconds to a minute or two. Let it run uninterrupted to completion.
  • Once it's finished it should reboot your machine. If it does not, please manually reboot the machine yourself to ensure a complete clean.


Download Auslogics Defrag from the link in my signature below. Auslogics Defrag in my opinion is better because:

It does a more comprehensive job at Defragging
It will actually show you what it is doing
At the end of working it will show you how much speed you picked up
You can view a online log of the files that Auslogics defragged
Please do not run any other Auslogics programs other then this one as they may cause unwanted results.

I've done the defragging and the TFC which cleared 627 MB of files.

So back to the usual, ongoing computer use. Thanks again for your attention.

I don't think it was ever an issue - I never have to sign in and I have never had any issue in 10 years with being an administrator on any of my computers - I don't seem to have set up any to be one - is that unusual? Anyone can start and use my computers but no one has ever done so - if stolen then yes they are open but the contents will be very boring to most and if not then I think those kind of people will not steal them - insha'allah!

Anyhow the deleting and access denied glitch has helpfully just vanished.
