Access Denied in System32 – How To Delete The File? Window Vista And
Windows 7 Error Fixes
By: K. Douglas
The access denied error when trying to fix your system or deleting malware files is a good
example of the overly intrusive UAC. There are two fixes for this issue and delete a file that
“could not be accessed”.
Disable User Account Control
The first option is not the best option. You should only do this if you have a good antivirus
program and a firewall. Launch MSCONFIG from the “Run menu” under “Start”. Go to the
last tab which called “Tools”. Under these options there should be an item called “UAC” or
“UAP” if you are using windows 7. This requires a reboot but you won’t be bugged by the
Delete It with Elevated Privileges
This step is best to do when you are not annoyed by the user account control but only want to
delete the file. Go to the start menu and press run. Enter “cmd.exe” and run it with elevated
privilege by pressing Control + Shift + R or right clicking and select “Run as Administrator”.
Now that you have administrator privileges you can move, delete or rename any file. Just
enter “DEL C:/windows/system32/…”, “MOVE C:/ D:/”, and so on. You won’t be bugged by
the system’s UAC anymore since you are an administrator by now.
