    Permission to delete files

    I am the only user of the machine running Vista Home Premium. I do not use an
    Administrator password.

    I want to delete a folder but I keep getting a message that I need permission.

    Also typing controluserpasswords2 into search does not get me anywhere to
    even check on what accounts are set up on the machine (possibly by the
    manufacturer).

    How can I resolve this?

    Hi gjc228,

    You may need to take Ownership of the file first before you can delete it. Method Two in this tutorial will show you how. Be sure to read the NOTE at the top for additional information.

    Take Ownership of file
