That thred seams to be about corrupt files.
this is not corrupt it plays.
It just got on my desktop by mistake and i want to delete it but good old UAC wont let me.

There has to be an easer way tha System Restore.

  sunnystaines 16:34 23 Dec 08

disable uac and put it back after deleting file.

When I Try to disable UAC says Can't find secpol.msc


  sunnystaines 19:16 23 Dec 08

secpol.msc is only supplied in certain versions Business and Ultimate. You will not get it or other policy editors in home versions of Vista.

sounds like you have several corrupt dll's I would try SFC /SCANNOW or a vista repair from the disc.

have you not got a clone backup?

  sunnystaines 19:26 23 Dec 08

try this software [i have not used it] so cannot vouch for it click here

did you try in safe mode and del at the cmd promp?

File Assassin should sort this for you Earlr click here

If no joy,post back and we should be able to remove this another way.

Or boot into safemode and try to delete the file.

Boot in safemode helped.

Thanks again
