    Can't remove Old windows file


    Hey guys.. I'm using core-i5 6200 6th Gen laptop with windows 10. My windows was creating some problems so I had to reset Windows. Now I can't delete windows.Old file. I have tried disk clean up method but it has left some files and are unremovable. By deleting it says you need permission from trusted installer.
    Any Help please.

    Welcome to TenForums @Ishaq Khan

    Stubborn files in windows.old are often drivers that are incorrectly marked as 'in use' despite being in windows.old. Try Option Three: 'Delete "Windows.old" Folder in a Command Prompt at Boot' in this tutorial.
