Administrator permission

When trying to delete a folder of pictures, I get a message box saying I need administrator permission...I am the administrator.  Can someone please help w/this?  I am a beginner, thanks.

Re: Administrator permission

In Vista and Windows 7, you are a user with certain admin rights, not a full administrator like you were in XP.

 

Where is this folder located?

Re: Administrator permission

Try deleteing the files in the folder, not the folder itself.

Re: Administrator permission

Hi Daniel,

 

Not really, I am able to delete files one at a times, I thought there must be an easier way to do it when there are over 250 pictures!  Any help would be much appreciated, thanks so much.

Re: Administrator permission

Hi again,

Unlocker (free software) should help you with this kind of problem.
