Windows 7 administrator's permissions

+2 votes
33 views

I did a clean install of windows 7 ultimate. Now I can't delete the 32 gb windows.old folder. I get the error message: "You must be an administrator or have the appropriate permissions to perform this operation."

Why is this happening? What can I do?

Command prompt, run as admin. If you did a clean install how is it you have a Windows.old? Install to another partition?

I am able to see the absolute (exact) time on Win-XP of a file when it was last modified in hours, minutes, and seconds ("Today, May 11, 2014, 6:06:09 AM") by displaying the file properties.

On Windows 7, it displays the time as relative and a rough estimate ("Today, May 11, 2014, 2 hours ago"). How do I change it so it displays absolute time like Windows XP.

I have Windows 7 64 bit, and all updates are installed. I cannot download IE 10, as it says I need Service Pack 1, which, as far as my PC is concerned, is non-existent.

I have checked ALL the installed updates (guess how long that took!) - I have the Service packs for my Office version, so where or what is Service Pack 1 for Windows 7, or is it a figment of the MS imagination?
