"Access Denied" trying to delete folders RRS feed

  • Question

  • I keep having permission problems trying to delete folders in the "Programs" folder.
    The items need to be manually deleted b/c the uninstall failed to delete them.
    What I have done:  Using a Domain Admin account, I take ownership, open elevated explorer, and still get permission denied when I try to delete.
    What's weird, is if I go to another machine (using the same account), I can browse to \\computername\c$\programs\ and delete the files without any problem.

    Why can I delete these files over the network, but not from the console?  Seems backwards to me.
