    Old windows folders

    I seem to have a old version of a windows folder on my laptop that i am trying to remove unsuccessfully (print screen attached)

    Does anyone have any ideas on how to remove this as it will NOT delete.

    thanks

    Depeneding on your Windows go Control Panel/Administrative Tools/Disk clean, select the drive containing the old windows, let it find things to remove and you will get the result and the option to remove old windows installations.

    In Windows 7 go Start/All programs/Accessories/System Tools/Disk Cleanup , if you have just one drive/partition it will autorun if not then select your Windows drive and run it and when it has found files that can be deleted it will give a further option to Clean up system files. The only reason why there would not be a Disk Cleanup would be a Customised installation that disabled some Control Panel Options. Normally this would only be used on a network to stop you changing other users settings. Be patient as nothing appears to be happening while Disk Cleanup starts.
