  • Hi Vishal Sharma,

    When you say c:\windows\windowsmobile do you refer to Windows Mobile Device Center?

    To remove Windows Mobile Device Center folder, it is suggested to uninstall it from control panel first.

    1. Close the Windows Mobile Device Center software.
    2. Click the Start button.
    3. Select Control Panel.
    4. Select Uninstall a program.
    5. Click to and highlight Windows Mobile Device Center.
    6. Click Uninstall
    7. "Preparing to remove..." will be displayed.
    8. If WMDC was not closed before attempting to uninstall, a warning screen may appear. Check Automatically close and click OK
    9. Windows Vista will now automatically uninstall WMDC.

    Now please try to remove the folder. If any error received, please tell us the exact wording.

    Hope it helps.
