Deleting an User Account on Vista Home Premium
« on: October 27, 2007, 11:42:40 AM »
My OS is Home Premium and had created an account say "XXX YYY". I then
deleted this account but the following folder didn't get deleted:

C:\USERS\XXX YYY

The account has been deleted but not this folder. How can I delete
this folder?

Sometimes, only using Unlocker (http://ccollomb.free.fr/unlocker/) or Delete FXP (http://www.jrtwine.com/) you can delete files that, for any reason, have a bad 'signature' in the Master File Table (MFT). Also you can use FileASSASSIN or KillBox... just Google 8)

Some files could be removed following How to Remove Files with Reserved Names.
