  • Hi Windowsxp0123,

     

    Did you did it the right way ? i suspect you missed the opportunity by hitting f8 when the OS is booting ?

  • Hi,

    First check the ntfs permissions: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/308419  . If you can't change the permissions, and you are the administrator, consider making yourself "owner" of the files: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/308421 

    If you have no local administrator privileges, get in touch with your administrator (http://support.microsoft.com/kb/298345)

     If the permissions are fine,  boot into safemode (http://www.microsoft.com/resources/documentation/windows/xp/all/proddocs/en-us/boot_failsafe.mspx?mfr=true) to be sure no program can be using th file or folder and try again. If this worked and the issue reoccurs, consider using Sysinternals Process explorer or "Handle" http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/sysinternals/bb896655 to find out which program has an open handle to the fie or folder.

    If this also does not help, run chkdsk (http://support.microsoft.com/kb/315265) to verify the filesystem.

  • Thanks for the suggestion but i have same problem with Chkdsk...

    when i type in cmd Chkdsk it shows me this message:

    Chkdsk cannot run because the volume is in use by another process.Chkdsk may run if this volume is dismounted first.ALL OPENED HANDLES TO THIS VOLUME WOULD THEN BE INVALID.Would you like to force a dismount on this volume?(Y/N)

    Why?

  • Hi,

     

    I would advised you to use HDD Regen tools from HIREN boot.. it will fix your bad sector in a slow phase.. it also depends how big your hard disk size is.. the bigger size you have.. the longer it takes.. fixing the bad sector would allow your hard disk to function normal.. it will be good enough for you to backup the files and purchase a new hard disk once your hard disk sector is being fixed.. each fixed will not last for more than a week..

  • Hi,

    the message you get from chkdsk is because files are open on the disk. that might be also the reson why you cannot delete them.

    Indeed having a program that runs from the disk is like an open file. On top, most Antivirus software uses mechanisms to protect their processes, which might be a reason why chkdsk does not succeed in frreing all handles to the disk.

    please do those actions in safemode to verify: in safemode applications (like your AV) are not launched.

  • OK i will try but without chkdsk!!!I will run the local disk d in safe mood and,make new folder to add the antivirus to it.And i think the problem will be solved because AV protects himself of deleting viruses(viruses who deletes AV)

  • Hi,

     

    chkdsk checks the integrity of the disk an the filesystem.

    If there are isuses with one of both, chkdsk is often capable of restoring the disk in a usable state.
