- Subject: Cannot delete shortcuts under windows XP
I reinstalled Windows XP pro and tried to manually delete the C:\cygwin
folder, but I can not delete any of the "shortcuts" in the various folders
(such as the hosts, networks and protocol shortcuts,.. etc). I get an
"access denied" message: "the file is either write protected or in use"...,
even when I'm logged on as administrator.
How do I remove these files ???
Thank you for your help and comments !
