    Running Vista Home Premium 64 bit as Owner and administrator.

    In the attempt clean up unused folders within the X86 file folder I ran
    across this troublesome Croft folder that gives the following Access Denial:
    "You need permission to perform this action"

    Will some kind person please explain to this 80 year old just what I need to
    do
    to rid my Computer of this argumentative folder? Have enough arguments with
    83 year wife.

    Thanks for all replies.

    Well, folders in Program Files (x86) folder are usually removed by
    uninstalling applications. NCSoft folder relates to any of NC Software's
    games (Dungeon Runners, City of Heroes, etc.)

    If you tried to delete the folder, and there was a file in use in Vista
    then you can't delete that folder.

    Best thing to do is get the NC Soft Installer (you can download it from
    NCSoft.com I think) install it again on your system. Once the program is
    installed and running correctly, then you can "uninstall" the application
    and Windows should remove the folder and close all files in use in Vista.

    Go to your control panel
    Go to "Programs and Features" (Add/Remove Programs)
    Find the NC Soft games or just the NCSoft Installer
    Select one of these programs and click uninstall above the list.
    follow the directions to remove the program properly from your system.

    Write back if you need more help. Good luck with the wifey.

    It's also entirely possible your anti-virus software may have quarantined
    something in that folder. I encountered that once with another game.

    If Joe's solution doesn't work, check your security software to see if it's
    quarantined anything from those folders, since some leave the file in the
    folder, just inaccessible, which would prevent a reinstall/uninstall from
    working.
