Windows 10: Invalid file handle.

    Invalid file handle.


    I tried installing cygwin and messed up what I wanted installed. Now, when I try to delete C:\cygwin\usr\share\avogadro\crystals\zeolites\CON.cif I get an error that I have an invalid file handle and cannot delete it. I don't see anything special about this file, so why can't I delete it?

    Very confused...

    Give Revo Uninstaller Freeware a go.

    First try to uninstall it. If it works, fine. If the uninstaller does not work, do a force uninstall, scan for leftovers and delete them.
