    You have to patient with Windows. At work I've seen the system chug for what seems hours and then the screen messages "Unable to update, removing files" or something to that effect
    LOL funny enough a few minutes after I say that I'm back to Desktop. Everything seems good and the BT folder was moved to Windows.old.

    Hopefully you can now just use Disk Cleanup, Clean up system files, to get rid of Windows.old without the issues you had before.

    OK, so in order to "properly" remove the windows.old folder, it needs to be done through Disk Cleanup > click cleanup system files, and check "Windows previous installations" to remove. Trying to delete it direct from Windows Explorer will get you right back to where you were with the BT folder.... bad issues!!!

    Peace
