How do i delete a corrupt file from my computer?

Recommended Posts

there are two corrupt files taking up precious space on my tiny slow C:\ drive, and I want to get rid of them. unfortunately, the standard routine of pressing "Delete" or dragging to the recycle bin doesn't seem to work. i get a error message saying "HTML-B is not accessible, access is denied" (HTML-B is the file name). how do i successfully get rid of this thing???

Reboot your system in Safe Mode. After that find the find you want to delete and try and delete it. Safe Mode usually works when trying to delete files which are normally in use during a normal Windows boot.

before i enter the mysterious world of safe mode, i have a question:

 

is safe mode a DOS interface? or do you still see your usual Windows stuff

 

because if its a DOS interface then FORGET IT! (let's just say i didn't have a very pleasant experience when i pressed some key by accident when my computer was booting and i ended up in some DOS thing and i had no clue how to go back to the normal windows)

Safe mode looks like the normal Windows graphic user interface. It just looks funny because it's not loading any device drivers. You can then browse around for files that are normally loaded during normal Windows and delete them.

i tried safe mode, and here is what i have to say:

 

1) i discovered that i am not really the administrator for my computer, even though my user name is "Owner". there is a separate part called "Administrator" that is like windows 2000 and everything is all weird in his part

 

2) i deleted the corrupt file, but not the corrupt folder lying on my desktop. so i need more suggestions to delete the folder
