View Thread: How do I remove Windows.old in Vista?

    I've reinstalled my Vista(because the RTM checked build cannot recognize my hardwares) so there's a Windows.old in my harddisk.

    I tryed to delete it but Vista said I don't have right to, I spawned "administrator right enabled" explorer process to delete it, and still it can't let me remove the exe/dll files (It still said I have no right to remove them).

    I don't really want to remove it in WinXP as I don't want one OS to write changes to the other's partition, so what should I do to remove the folder in Vista?
