you require permission from system windows 7
HI, I'm trying to delete a file from C:\windows\system32\drivers. vsdatant.sys But I keep getting "you require permission from system to make changes to this file" I have logged in as local admin but still getting same error message. I do have admin permission. I'm using Windows 7 Enterprise 64Bits

1. You can delete files with SYSTEM permissions with the help of Command Prompt run Scheduled Task (interactively), but think TWICE before you do it. 2. You have not specified why you would like to delete file there. For removing drivers follow the procedure http://www.petri.co.il/removing-old-drivers-from-vista-and-windows7.htm Regards Milos

Hi, Why do you want to delete the driver? It is not recommend to delete the files on system drive. If you have performed this, please perform system restore first. Niki Han TechNet Community Support

I've had that happen to me many many times. I'm not 100% sure why it's doing that. I found that if it won't let me delete a folder, I go into that folder and delete everything inside of it, it will then let me delete the whole thing.
