    Need help to create a batch file


    Hi Folks,

    I need to create a batch file that automatically takes permissions & delete the following file & folders

    File:- C:\Windows\System32\SecurityHealthSystray.exe

    Folders:-

    C:\Windows\WinSxS\amd64_windows-securityhealth-sso_31bf3856ad364e35_10.0.19041.1_none_753cc0191556f0a2

    C:\Windows\WinSxS\amd64_windows-securityhealth-sso_31bf3856ad364e35_10.0.19041.746_none_9d44fd61d4c8aeec

    Can anyone help/guide me on how to create it properly?

    Matthew Wai, you're very good with CMDs

    If the folder you want to delete has files and folders, don't you need to clean them first?

    No, that's what Mathew used the /S /Q options for.

    Code:
    >RD /?
    Removes (deletes) a directory.
    
    RMDIR [/S] [/Q] [drive:]path
    RD [/S] [/Q] [drive:]path
    
        /S      Removes all directories and files in the specified directory
                in addition to the directory itself.  Used to remove a directory
                tree.
    
        /Q      Quiet mode, do not ask if ok to remove a directory tree with /S

    I suppose it also work if you have Hidden or system files on it.

    RD /s /q "%Folder%" will delete the folder whether it is empty or not.

    I think del command would be more suited for this task, not sure.

    Code:
    del FOLDER /Q /S
    At least this works to remove files that have invalid path characters. (which otherwise can't be removed by normal means)

    The following script can remove a folder that cannot be removed by normal means.

    I wouldn't call it that, too much like phishing. Like everyone does, it's just taking the short route to the solution, they all exist in documentation somewhere if one digs deep enough. Remember the DOS Commands books of the past? Still have mine.

    Disclaimer: I have not run the code in post #1. Let the OP tell us whether it works.
