Hi folks,I was told to download windows installer kb893803 to try and resolve a problem.It didn't but it won't move from the recycle bin.It's stopping me from emptying the bin atall.It's saying"cannot delete Dc2 access is denied make sure the disc is not full or write protected"I've tried safe mode but it's not in the bin in safe mode.Any idea how I can get rid of it?Thanks.

Try restoring it to it`s original location. i.e. out of the recycle bin. Then try to delete it in safe mode by holding the shift key and delete key. This should remove it permanently.

Hi folks,ccleaner wont shift it neither will unlocker.Even when I try to restore it it says it cant be moved.Really annoying.

Try accessing your recycler bin:
Type: C:\recycler
into the run box,and see if the file is in there
also:
did you reboot after using unlocker? - it is normally necessary

First try Unlocker several times like cocteau48 says it will remove on boot,

Or delete it when in safe mode,

When I type c:\recycler into the run box it shows up empty but they're defineyely in the bin.Nothing's moving them.It's a nusicence cos it means I have to delete everything else from the bin manually.

How about re-downloading and re-installing kb893803 and then see if the file in the recycle bin will restore itself in the new download.

Yeah,that's what I'll do.I'll try that.Thanks.
