    I have been reading the other posts in regards to this problem and they are
    way over my head, I just need to get rid of this problem - some things
    delete just fine, others won't delete and won't move. This is just my home
    computer, I'm not networked with any other computer. I put the items on the
    computer I should be able to remove them!!!! Could someone please provide
    me with a simple easy to understand solution? Thank you......

    Check out this link. Although it says XP it also applies to Vista.

    Here is another link about how to add "Take Ownership" to your
    right-click context menu.

    I hope this helps you.

    I'll second the motion for the recommendation for Shawn (Brink). He's
    the resident authority on Vista. If you need additional help just ask.

    Thanks C.B. it worked great. I still don't understand why Mr. Gates has to
    make things more difficult when he upgrades windows..... Thanks again....

    I have had the same problem; every now and then a random file or folde
    will refuse to delete, move or rename, and I usually have to reboot m
    computer and everything's fine. I did try the site where you dl th
    "take ownership" file, but it doesn't seem to work! Any othe
    suggestions on how to either stop or avoid this?

    Hello JWG8401,

    If you have the 32 bit Vista, you can try the free program "Unlocker"
    to see if it can help you delete a stubborn file.


    Hope this helps,
