    After 10 :) The system cannot find the path specified.

    I use DIR /x and then file was with different name and I successfully delete it with "Del (new name)"

  • Go to control panel, folder options, view and clear the checkmarks to allow you to see all the files on your computer. Also check to make sure the option to hide system and other files is unchecked, too, and also uncheck the option for hiding extensions. ADMINISTRATIVE ACCESS DOES NOT AFFECT YOUR ABILITY TO SEE HIDDEN OR SYSTEM FILES !!!

  • I think you don't understand me, I want to hide this file or delete it. I don't want to see it at all. The problem is that i see the file that i can't move, delete rename. Checkmarks that you tell me too try don't do anything too this file, even extension is still there :)
