Cannot Delete a downloaded ISO

Q: Cannot Delete a downloaded ISO

So I got all nostalgic the other day and decided to download the free version of Command and Conquer. In my haste I found out that the ISO images wouldn't work with Windows 7, but they had a fix which was to download a different file and not use the ISO image. I had already burned it and tried to install off of the disc.

The ISO file is on my desktop which means it's on my SSD... so obviously I want to remove it as it is taking up 600mb's of space. I've tried safe mode, 3rd party programs, ending different tasks... and nothing is working. I searched this site to see if anyone had similar problems and searched for the specific problem of not being able to delete the C&C ISO across google with little success. It may be my weak google-fu, but so far I'm coming up short.

Does anyone have any bright ideas on why this isn't able to be deleted?

The error it gives is that the file is open in System.

A: Cannot Delete a downloaded ISO

I managed to fix my own problem.

The issue was a program that I thought had been deleted, but it had not. Magic Disc version 2.7 was used when I couldn't get the C&C burned disc to work. I guess other people have had issues when removing Magic Disc, so I had to go through and dig it out of the registry.

MagicDisc... not good! How to uninstall it when it fails. | Practically Quixotic...

That's the guide I used. Once I removed parts of it from the registry it let me uninstall the program and then I was able to delete the ISO file off my desktop.

Is it ok to delete downloaded files in the "download folder"?

A:Delete downloaded files

If you're done with them, sure. They are only things you should have downloaded with your browser from the internet, and as such if you don't need them, you should be safe to remove them.

Somehow I downloaded Windows Genuine Advantage Notification. It now shows on the update icon, to be installed. I don't want to install it. How can I get rid of it?

I am set up to get notification of updates before they are downloaded, and I don't remember seeing the notification for this. Possibly I accepted it by mistake, when I thought it was for the MS Defender. I always go into the Custom Install to make sure which files are to be installed, deselecting any I don't want. However, this is the only one being held, and I can't seem to deselect it.

Can you tell me both how to get rid of this downloaded item without installing it, and WHERE on my hard drive downloaded updates are placed, pending installation.

I cleaned out my delete file to assure that it was not the problem. I tried to clean my sent file, but none of the sent e-mails can be deleted. If I transfer the e-mails to a temporary file, then that file can be deleted.

I suspect that I have a corrupted index file, but I don't know how to find it or fix it. This may not be the problem.

Welcome Sanju0011 to the windows 7 forum.

Have you checked your Anti-Virus as most check downloads and verify that the downloads are not infected

Also, what level of security are you running, you might not have the permissions to write to the download directory.

Also, what are you trying to download?? is it the same file? Have you tried other files?

Also, you might want to fill in your System Spec's

how can i delete an update that has been downloaded but not yet installed? i'm sure that this update caused the corruption/deletion of my user profile and i've restored my system to a date before it was installed. but now anytime i want to turn my computer off, it wants to re-install the update. how can i avoid this? thanks!

A:Delete a downloaded Update that is not installed yet?

The best way clear the whole C:\Windows\SoftwareDistrubution folder and hide problematic hotfixes in Windows Update.Of course in this case you remove all downloaded hotfixes (wanted and unwanted).If you really want to remove only particular hotfix use any good 3p file manager (in my opinion build-in explorer is not good too to this kind operations) and search in file names hotfix ID,i.e if you want find data related to KB976672,you have to find in names this ID.

Relate to problematic updates:

If really some updates cause problems I suggest contact with manufacturer support or MS support,hidding updates is only temporary solution,if you leave it,you will have another problems with other updates in future too.

After downloading what was supposed to be the latest version of Adobe Reader, I went to my download folder to install it and found dozens of file folders that won't open. The files have labels that all start with FAP followed by numbers and a letter; for example: FAP19E0, FAP24D0, FAP26B2 and names like that. I cannot open any of them because I get the message "Windows can't open this file" every time. After I tried to delete them over and over, filenames appeared like FAP29AD - Copy - Copy - Copy.tmp so apparently they just kept copying as I tried to delete them.

I downloaded a snapfire image off a file sharing program (I know it's risky, and it looks like I'm paying) and I cannot move it to the trashcan, right-clicking does not give me the option to delete, cannot select for custom deleting with ccleaner, cannot move to spybot s&d shredder. It's just sitting, while I'm unable to do anything about it. I am running virus scans; hopefully they will detect it. If not, please tell me what to do and how to stop this problem in the future, because it can come from many sources, not just file sharing programs. Thank you.

Spybot s&d just finished and it didn't detect anything with it being most up to date with downloads and neither did ad aware se. It may not be a virus, and was probably made to just be an annoyance.

Hi, I am still having a problem trying to get rid of a file dealing with Dialer.one0none. The only time this shows up is when running Norton Anti Virus scan, as being in c:/windows/downloaded program files\109554.exe. I cannot delete it using NAV. When searching for this file, it is no where to be found.
My question is this, Can I delete the entire contents of the c:/windows/downloaded program files? Maybe this would get rid of it.
I am running Windows XP Home ed. I am on cable and do not have my phone connected to the computer. There don't seem to be any problems other than this keeps coming up on my virus scan as a threat and when I try to delete it, it fails.

So I was downloading a couple files for work and when it asked me where to save them, I accidentally saved them in the recovery partition. When i try to open the recovery folder, it just says:

"Recovery Partition

Warning

This area of your hard drive (or partition) contains files used to perform a system recovery.

Do not delete or alter any of these files.

Any change to this partition could prevent a system recovery in the future."

That's all fine and good, but how can I get the files out? I can download them again, but they are quite large and taking up a lot of space in the recovery drive, potentially preventing it soon from being able to restore should i need it. How can I open this folder to extract the files?

Hello!

I am hoping someone here can help me. I was trying to stream a video and one of the many links i clicked on (most of which just play the video and that's it) automatically downloaded an .exe file.

When I go to the downloads folder, it will not let me delete it. I can not move it to any other folder. I have tried going into control panel and deleting it, but it does not show up there. I have tried deleting it through the properties (as i saw somewhere online) but that doesn't work either.

Nothing happens when I right click, and then click delete. I have seen many people having the issue of not being able to uninstall this same program, but they all say that it tells them it's currently being used, and there are specific steps to go through in that situation, but mine doesn't even say it's being used. It just does nothing.

I have not tried to open or run the file at all, because obviously i don't know what it is or want to run it. I just want to delete it completely.

Can anyone help?

I downloaded an installer for a program i want to use (i know i know). as soon as it finished downloading my anti virus popped up saying virus detected with a box to perform an action, so i hit move to chest and a box popped up saying "cannot process "D:\DOWNNLOADS\reaper3.01.rar\reaper3.01install.exe\$PLUGINSDIR\3xl-pwn.exe\%PLUGINSDIR\3xl-pwn.exe""

so i go to try and delete the rar and a box pops up saying "this action cannot be completed because the file is open in another program".

I've run another virus scan on the rar and it popped up saying infection found, this time it let me move the infected file to the vault, but i still cannot delete the rar as it says the file is open in another program.

I believe this "3xl-pwn.exe" has hopped out and hidden itself somewhere on the computer. I'm running 2 virus checks right now and its found an infection in the rar still, same name and directory as before. but i've moved it to the vault, plus when i run a scan on the rar itself it comes up as clean.... bit confusing.

I've had a search through the computer (search function) and it can't find an exe called 3xl-pwn.exe, plus I've had a look at the processed running and there arn't any unusual ones. So is it dormant? i presume not as its 'running in another program" as mentioned.

I am trying to delete songs from my itunes that I do not like anymore to make some space on my laptop. I know that sometimes when I delete songs it pops up saying "delete from hard drive?". I want that to pop up always, but for some reason it doesnt sometimes. My friend said that it will only do that if you have itunes organizing the folders. So i deleted my preferences and made it so itunes will organize my music. However I still delete songs and they dont delete off my hard drive. I was told that the songs have to be in the itunes music folder, I had alot of songs in there, but some in a different folder. I thought maybe I could move the other folder into the itunes music folder, and then it would work. However now when I go to play some songs it says the file cannot be found. Anything I can do? HELP ME!

A:How do I delete songs from hard drive when I delete them from my Itunes library?

Because you moved the songs from where iTunes was used to looking for them they will not play - when each song comes up and the error message you described comes up you can click yes to find them and browse for them (you should know where they are if you put them all in one folder). This will re-establish the link to the song's new location in iTunes.
If you have lots to do, it may be faster to delete all your songs from iTunes (not your computer) and set up the folder on your computer properly - one My Music folder with all your music in there - they can be further sorted into subfolders if you want to. Then open iTunes, set the Preferences to "Keep iTunes folder organised" and "copy files to iTunes folder when adding to library" and import all your music from your My Music folder again.
When you get new music by whatever means and import them to iTunes it will automatically place a copy in the iTunes "iTunes music" folder for you and always know where to look for them.

Hello all,
This is the second computer I have experienced this issue on... I am not sure what setting I may have unknowinlgy enabled to create this fiasco.. hopefully you all have an opinion.

All of the sudden, my backspace key will not delete text that I have highlighted in Word 2002. My delete key will, but my backspace key won't.... this is a pain in the rear since it takes a lot more effort to use to use the delete key than the backspace key, and using backspace has been ingrained in me since childhood.

I did not change any settings or turn on any features (unless it was unknowingly)... I was not messing with options or settings recently at all, as well. I am completely stumped as to how this happens... as mentioned before, it is the second computer to do this to me.

Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks a ton!

Gentlemen [and Ladies ?]

I have three questions.

My Operating System is Windows XP Professional SP2.

1. I read the reply to PURE TRAGEDY's post of the 7th April 2005 and immediately uninstalled my AVG7 anti-virus scanner. Norton System Works antivirus and AVG7 antivirus had been running side by side for six or seven months and nothing untoward had happened, but when I read the dire warning in the advice to PURE TRAGEDY, AVG7 got the chop.

I would like to scan with Norton in SAFE MODE but do not know how to do it. When I had Windows 98SE, my computer used to jump into SAFE MODE without me doing anything positive to cause it to do that. I had no idea how to get out of SAFE MODE so a neighbour helped. I cannot remember what he did. My computer was in SAFE MODE for two days on one occasion because I did not dare mess about with it.

So, an explanation, in 'dummy' language, exactly how I can get into SAFE MODE, and scan my computer for viruses with Norton, and how I can get out of it, will be appreciated.

2. I have Norton System Works, Ad-Aware SE Personal, Spybot S&D, Spyware Blaster. Spyware Guard, and 2-Squared in my computer. The programmes are updated and used every day. Norton detected a virus which AVG7 did not, so I feel happy with the Norton security.

A:XP queries - SAFE MODE; BETA, and delete or not delete

I too am a tidy person, to the degree I can be, oldsoldierThe reason you had no untoward results having both Norton & AVG running was probably due to how they were configured to run.If both were set to to scan continously and be auto-updated constantly, then some problems may have surfaced.You may simply delete the Grisoft folder.You need not open any of the files before you do.That folder was essentially for backups to what the AV software did for you.Without it's presence, or in light of your decision not to re-install it, those files in that folder are useless.I should mention I uninstalled Norton in favor of AVG because:1. Norton updates less frequently than AVG, and isn't effective against as many new variants as the Grisoft has been in the last couple of years.2. Norton costs more.3. Norton, when uninstalled, is also messy. It seems to me to require more system resources to do less for me. An opinion based on a couple years of observation, and reading countless HJT logs where it is installed and serious malware problems also co-exist. 4. Norton offers several products. I've had most installed at one time or another.I bought the System Works Suite in 2002. It deeply embeds into winXP when you use all the features of it, and slows the PC down considerably doing so. If you do not use a similar product, then you will not have similar experiences. The anti-virus aspect of it alone did prove IMHO to be marginally adequate.Microsoft Beta 1 is not anti-vir...

I am trying to delete a large file that was used by PC Tools AntiVirus. I have uninstalled the PC Tools software, but a file remained. I have tried to delete it, but nothing I've tried has worked. The file is

c:\documents and settings\all users\application data\PC Tools\Temp

For some reason, the file is very, very large, and I don't understand what is going on with it. When I try to delete it, some members actually add space believe it or not (I have watched this happen). One went from a few K to 11 mb when I tried to delete it! Is there a "hard command" to delete this thing? I have "fired all my bullets". I am running AVG antivirus now to determine if a virus is involved. AVG runs for over 2 hours because of the size of this file. I need a "strong" command to get rid of this thing. Help would be greatly appreciated.

Hi there
Be careful with IMAP and Outlook 2010 as the DELETE really does DELETE stuff off the server.

In Outlook 2007 you got a line through the items and had to do EDIT==>PURGE to delete stuff off the server so be careful if you really DON'T want to physically delete mail from the server when using OUTLOOK 2010 - especially if you still need the email and are just testing OUTLOOK 2010 on one machine and need the email on other machine(s).

There might be settings to change this but I've basically used the defaults -- there is quite a bit of change from Outlook 2007 to 2010 (it's actually much nicer - more in keeping with the rest of Office 2010).

Cheers

Hi, I think all my problems started when I installed a new McAfee security program three days ago and now I can't seem to get anything to work. My Yahoo mail acount will not delete any unwanted messages although I check the box and click on delete, nothing happens. I also lost all the names in my browser. Nothing appears when I click on it. I have to type each www. name in each time. I tried to send and E-mail to [email protected][/email], but it would not go. Maybe it would be better to uninstall the McAfee and restore my computer back to before I installed it. Please advise.

Well...I would agree about dumping the McAfee but since you paid money for it you will simply have to start reading the HELP files on how to use and configure it. Your problems are all because McAfee is not configured or over configured for your needs.

The program can be overwhelming to a novice computer user. If you want good anti-virus protection with a firewall, then see this: www.my-etrust.com/microsoft

I cannot get a delete query to delete; it keeps saying "Cannot delete specified records", and the 'Help' button doesn't bring up any help. It should be simple. Have two tables with the same fields, except that tbl2 has one additional field called [Delete] that contains an "X" for the records I want to delete from tbl1. Each table has an ID number, but in tbl1, it's a primary field while in tbl2, it's only a number.

I first created a query that selected only those records in tbl2 where there is (a) an "X" in the Delete field and (b) the Contribution field is null. I used that query in the delete query where I inner join it to tbl1 using the ID number. I put the "*" from tbl1 in the first column of the query, and it correctly puts "From" in the Delete row. If I do a View of the result, it displays 234 records, which is the correct number of records to be deleted. But when I try to run the query, all I get is the error message.

What's wrong with the query?

OK, here's the situation...I had a folder which normally has some subfolders beneath it, say the structure is something like \..\uploaded\errors (the "\..\" is another folder or two). The folder structure was created by an app I use at work (It's only, maybe, 4 folders deep in total). By whatever demon, the folder structure now says something like:"\..\uploaded\errors\uploaded\errors\uploaded\errors\uploaded\errors\uploaded\errors\.............\"792 folders deep.I have no idea how this occurred since there's little to no activity in these folders at any given time.

A:Done with a variable .. how can I delete it from memory ? -- delete in C++ ?

It's really not advisable to try to manage memory for scalar variables. It's generally done more for data structures such as arrays and linked lists.

Keep in mind that any variable declared within a function exists only for the duration of that function's execution, unless it is declared as "static." So memory management for a variable declared within a function (unless it's the main function) is something you don't worry about.

However, if your heart is set on managing memory yourself, "new" and "delete" will do it for you. These are C++'s extensions of C's malloc() and free().

So,

new int i ;
...
delete i ;

Don't try to delete a variable you haven't allocated with "new."

Hi, for some reason I can no longer use the Delete key to move files to the recycle bin, delete text, et cetera. I can still use Shift+Delete to permanently remove files et cetera, but using the Delete key by itself does not do anything whatsoever. This also doesn't appear to be a hardware issue, as using two different keyboards as well as the on-screen keyboard yields the same result. Using a program that checks for keyboard inputs, it also clearly shows the Delete key being pressed, but nothing happens.

Anyone know what is going on? I tried closing down any programs that could possibly interfere, for example programs that might use the Delete key for some shortcut or macro et cetera.

A:Delete key non-responsive, doesn't delete

Right click on the Recycle shortcut on your desktop and select Properties from the context menu.

Once the properties window appears, select the option named:
Don't move files to the Recycle Bin. Remove files immediately when deleted.

"OK" your way our of that properties window.

Use Windows (file) Explorer to delete the folder* named $Recycle.Bin

*If need be, set Windows (file) Explorer to show protected operating system files.

Open the Recycle bin's properties window again and select:
Custom size

"OK" your way our of that properties window.

You should now have a new folder** named $RECYCLE.BIN

You might need to refresh Windows (file) Explorer.

Hopefully, this rebuilt recycle bin will work for you. If not, then we have some more hunting to do.

Is there anyway I can do what I need? Exporting into another file or another worksheet within this file would be fine.

Thanks in advance.

I want to use Find and Replace to delete all the links in a document. All the links are as text (e.g. http://...). I don't mean that the word Yahoo is a link to http://www.yahoo.com.

I want to use wild cards to select the Whole link.
I thought find http://* would select it all, but it only selects the http:// part of the whole link.
I have checked the Use Wildcards checkbox.

How do I select the whole link so that I can replace it with a blank space?

I'm using Word 2003.
 

A:Delete all links, delete all that begin w/ http: | "Find and Replace" Help

Try using something like this in your search field for Replace:
http:?*?*****************************
Edit:Oh, you are in Word - what I suggested works in Excel.
In Word, you will have to do something like this:
(http:????????????????) - but that will only find names that are 21 characters long that start with "http:". If you have one that is 20 characters long, you will need to remove one question mark, then another, then another....
e.g., to find http://www.google.com you need "http:" followed by 16 "?" but to find http://www.yahoo.com you need "http:" followed by 15 "?".
It might be easier to export your data to Excel (if it is in a table, at least) and do the work there.

Hello

I have setup every application to "ask me before checking for updates",

Even when I am not using any brower, email or any opther application, I notice that my lights on my modem are blinking quite fast... that is something is being downloded. It has been going on for quite sometime.

How do I find out what is being downloded (or uploaded)?

I use
toshiba laptop
window 7 prof
IE9
MS office 2010
Internet secuirity (antivirus, etc ...) from Bell
Thank you very much
 

A:How do I know what is being downloaded?

And you have no browser open? And check for new email only infrequently?

You could try disconnecting from the modem and see if any program complains.

In Network Connections right click on your connection and select Status. Watch the Bytes sent and received to get an idea of the upload vs download and how much.

32bit will only see 4gigs of ram and usually only be able to use abt 3.3 its also a bit slower depending on how you use it. when changing from one OS format (32bit) to another (64bit) it has to be a clean install.

Now about restoring you may have a backup there and available but since you are 32 bit and it isnt you cant use it. If you were to reinstall vista 64 it probably be available

Hello. I downloaded the new sp3 update yesterday and followed all the instructions and i was ready to restart my computer. When i did, everything went fine until after the loading screen it gave me a blue error screen. Since i needed the computer in working order, I used a pc recovery tool (pressed F10 when it started up) and did a non-destructive recovery which took about 20 minutes. Then after that was done i had to restart and do the windows first start up thing. Then i finally finished and saw that all of my custom features and files were no where to be found! All my applications and games that i downloaded are still in shape, but all of the custom features (like background, WMP playlists, Updates) were all gone. so is there any whay which i can restore my old settings? I need to have all my original settings as soon as i can please .

Thanks

A:I really need help, downloaded SP3...

Hi cloud366, it sounds like you have done a repair install. When you pressed F10, did you choose Last Known Good Configuration from the boot menu?

Also, check in C:\Documents and Settings for a duplicate profile. It could be that your original profile has corrupted and Windows built you a new one.

All those type of "custom features" live in your local profile.

A:Think I Downloaded Something, Help

Hello and welcome to BleepingComputer I don't see any malware there.Some points:Do you have a bought license for Norton? Or did you get it for free? The reason I'm asking is, it's a really heavy app for an antivirus. You can install a better antivirus that's waaaay lighter and easier for the computer, and takes less ram and actually is more efficient too.So, I recommend uninstalling Symantec's products and installing AntiVir (That's the promotion license for AntiVir Premium -- 6 months for free. You can get their free edition here) or Avast! instead.Another valid point: when did you install Service Pack 3? There has been several flaws with it.. Some people have really bad problems with SP3, I seem to be one of the lucky ones with no issues. Did you notice the problems after installing it?Also have a read through THIS TOPIC.Finally.....Click Start >> Run and paste in:"%userprofile%\desktop\dss.exe" /daftClick OK.Click OK to the prompt from Deckard's System Scanner.Click Scan.Checkmark every entry found.Click Fix.Let me know how you get on.

system running : windows XP professional with sp3

okay, as the title implies, while surfing the internet a tab appeared in the firefox window that said "Updating..." but never showed/displayed anything. After that, I noticed the windows start/tool bar had changed from the XP theme version to the classic version. Then i noticed that there was no network connectivity. When I tried to look up what was wrong, the properties, rename, and delete options have been disabled from the right-click menu.
I received a message that there was attempt to update registry but whatever was done was restored, then my PC reboot.
what I've done so far:
I tried to boot using the windows xp CD but nothing happens. Windows eventually boots up, but I don't get any options to run repair or anything.
Used CA anti-virus for scan and found nothing (did this again in safe mode and still found nothing)
I did a search to see if I could find what was modified, it shows that all user accounts including a Helpassist?? account have been updated in some form or fashion so i don't know what else to do

I see svchost.exe, services.exe, and system taking up 50% of CPU occasionally but not sure what to make of that.

to get the internet started I tried to turn on some network services but all failed due to 'timeout'

Please let me know any ideas, or how to get started on trying to fix this problem.

My brother downloaded codec.exe onto his laptop, and now it is running slowly. Firefox and Internet Explorer redirects when I go on google, and click on the first link that appears. Help sort this out, I'm taking exams next year and I need this laptop to revise from!

Regards, GG

P.S. What do you want me to post, virus scan log wise?

A:codec.exe downloaded - help?

I was on a website I'd never been on before, and I clicked a link to download a torrent. However, it actually downloaded a .exe file. Not thinking, I opened it, and as I expected, nothing happened. About a minute later, my computer starts opening windows in Internet Explorer (even though I use Firefox) with adverts. I also keep getting notifications saying (something).exe is not working, such as vhr.exe or mas.exe. I am currently running a virus scan (with AVG), but I'm not sure it will detect it, as I opened an .exe file myself. Does anyone know what I can do to get rid of this? The file is gone now, and I cannot remember what it is called.

Thanks

Even though it appears you're having the same problem, please start a new thread when you have a new issue. It's very difficult to keep two problems straight and who's working on what in a single thread.

I've created a new thread for your issue here.

Thanks for your cooperation.
