Good morning everyone,
My inquiry is regarding how to remove a folder from C:\Program Files
when I continue receiving an "Access Denied
" message.Problem Description
:All actions described here were performed while logged in under my Windows Default Administrator account.
Yesterday evening (3/23), I downloaded & installed a temperature/fan speed monitoring application called, SpeedFan
. After looking through the program for about 20 minutes, I closed it and went to run the Speccy
program on my machine.
On all but two of the system specification items there was a red
error message displayed which read, "Cannot initialize spc.dll.
" I then uninstalled the SpeedFan
program via the Add/Remove Programs option in the Control Panel.
I tried running Speccy
again with the same error messages being shown. I uninstalled the Speccy program via Add/Remove Programs
option, then went to delete the Speccy folder in C:\Program Files
. A dialog box opened advising me that removing the folder might cause some programs not to function properly and asked if I wanted to proceed. I clicked <CONTINUE
>. I received the Access Denied
message yet again.
I then went to the Piriform website and downloaded the Speccy program again. When I ran the program, once again the same aforementioned error messages appeared.
I ran quick
scans with both Avast! (free), MBAM Pro, & SAS. All scans were clean.My question
:How can I remove the Speccy folder from C:\Program Files in this situation?Thank you for your time and any recommendations!
