    Files Deletion Denied by DESKTOP-7VG8SI1\infer User profile


    Hello I recently got a new laptop with Windows 10 and I'm trying to delete a directory in my Program Files(x86) directory. I botched a mod installation and I can't get rid of the file I have an admin profile, but whenever I try to delete it, it gets denied by a user profile called "DESKTOP-7VG8SI1\infer". I have granting myself full control over the directory through the security screen in properties and turned off read-only. I have also tried rebooting after doing this, but it has no effect. I have also tried File Assassin, but I am unable to get it to delete directories. Is there anything else I can do to delete this file?

    Solved it myself. Have to delete all the files within the directory before deleting the directory itself. It's tedious but it works.
