Glad you asked:

1. Click Start.2. Type the three letters cmd right into the Search box.3. Click "Run as Administrator".4. Type the complying with commands and also press Get in after each:

takeown /f "FULL PATH TO FOLDER" /a /r /d y

(This command also seized ownership of your temp folder)

icacls "FULL PATH TO FOLDER" /t /c /approve administrators:(X) System:F everyone:F

(This command also granted complete access to the temp folder for everyone)

Note: FULL PATH TO FOLDER is sindicate that, the complete route to the folder.

Let"s say you"re trying to delete Old Windows from C:. Your full path would certainly be:

"C:Old Windows"

After that you can continue to delete documents and also folders as usual.
