    I did try option 4 which didn't work but I was then able to fiddle with the permissions and delete the files/ folders. Reading this thread, many people have had problems deleting the offending residual Intel driver IntcDAud.sys which stops windows.old being deleted. IntcDAud.sys is already present in the updated Windows folder so why is it frequently left behind in the windows.old folder which is then hard to delete? This is another example of sloppy software engineering but I don't know who is to blame - MS or Intel?

    I'm glad you got it sorted. I'd say it's a draw between them.

    You can check this tutorial and option 4. Keep in mind a folder above the target file may also have permissions which will not allow deletion, so keep an eye on the inheritance options.
