Delay corrupted file in Program Files (x86) Reward $1
Created by davislml84, 149 days ago, 1772 views

I cannot delete a file that is in the Program Files (x86) directory even though I have admin permissions. I have run registry cleaner repeatedly but still no dice.

The first thing you need to do is take ownership of the folder you want to axe. In one deft move we’re going to take over the folder and bend it into submission.


Right click on the folder you want to banish to oblivion and choose Properties.

Under the Security tab click the Advanced button



Along the top of the Advanced Security Settings dialog box for the folder you’ll see the Name and Owner. In my case, someone named TrustedInstaller has exclusive rights to this folder.

Who is this TrustedInstaller guy?



The TrustedInstaller is a built-in account which installs, modifies and removes Windows updates and components. But here’s the thing: if the TrustedInstaller is the owner of a folder then you shouldn’t take ownership of that folder unless you really know what you’re doing; that’s because if you rename and delete such a folder you may render your system unusable.

I’m going change the ownership of this folder for this demonstration but in reality you shouldn’t ever need to do this on your computer.

Incidentally, if you’re running Windows 7 or Vista you can change the owner by clicking the Owner tab and choosing the Edit button.




Back in Windows 8.1, enter the user name you want to takeover ownership then click the Check Names button and choose OK.




You’ll get whisked back to the Advanced Security Settings screen but notice the owner is updated and there’s a little checkbox under it called Replace owner on subcontainers and objects.

Make sure you put a little check in there so you become the owner of not only the parent folder but everything in it too.




Alright now click Apply.

Windows will bark at you about reopening the properties before you can change permissions.




That’s what we’re going to do next, click OK and and close out of all the windows except for the one that shows the folder you want to access.

First--thanks for the quick response!!

No dice. I ran Explorer with admin privileges, went to Security under advanced properties. It says I need to have admin to continue, gives me a button, which I do, then I get the attached message--although I'm admin, although I specifically request admin for this purpose, I do not have permission.

Clearly, the file permissions are corrupted somehow--I cannot even view who the owner is, much less change ownership

Thank you!! That was it.

When I navigated to the file in safe mode--it was no longer there. I also deleted its parent just to be safe and restarted. An app crashed at that time--before I logged on--I think it was a residual copy of Explorer--but I don't know.

Hmm. Might it have been malicious? Anyway, thank you very much.

You just use a simple program like unlocker and you're done, bypass the properties of the file you want and then you can safely delete everything
