I recently upgraded my IDE hard disk to a SATA one. Did a clean install of WinXP on the new disk, but still use the old disk for storage purposes. Now that I have everything set up, I decided to remove the 3 GB worth of windows folder on the old disk. Turns out that it won't let me delete either flash10d.ocx or flashutil10d.exe in the windows\system32\macromed\flash folder. Note that this folder is located on the OLD disk, not the new one that I use as primary disk... Tried removing the read-only attribute from the files (not that that matters on WinXP, but just a try), turns out it wouldn't let me change the permissions! I searched around on google, but sofar no luck, only a few posts here and there indicating that people are experiencing the exact same thing when trying to remove either of these two files. Now I'd just boot into my linux box and remove the file from there, but I'm still curious as to how Adobe manages to effectively deny me access to these files... Anyone have any clues?
