    Hi Oxlzlope

    Not sure what you mean should I remove hard drive first.

    Do you have a two plus drive system?

    If there is data in this profile that you want to keep please back it up before deleting. If you have a data drive and want to ensure nothing strange happens to data when you delete then yes I would remove. That being said, if you remove when you try to remove profile then windows may complain as it can't access files.

    In this post spunk provides a link to take ownership which seems to be your issue.

    0x80004005 Unspecified error - Cannot erase file on USB Memory Stick

    Maybe try this before resetting Windows.

    the thing is i tried all the methods already

    take owner ship
    create a built in admin
    all the same you need permission from the 5-12-S something
    i guess full reset is the solution so i can create another user profile
