Specs: Windows 7, 520 @ 1.6oGHz, cpu2.50(1.99 usable)
Hello friends, I installed Nero 2014 and uninstalled it using Revo uninstaller pro, but I discover some left-over files in Local Disk (C:), I have tried to manually delete them but was not successful (I got this response: you require permission from your SYSTEM to make changes to this folder);
Great programmers and software engineers how can I delete these files? Win 7, 32 bits OS, memory 1.99 RAM, 520 @1.6GHz cpu processor.

If your sure it's from Nero, you can try a piece of freeware called unlocker http://filehippo.com/download_unloc...
Once install, right click on the offending folder or file and in the context menu that appears select unlocker. From it choose the appropriate action in this case delete. Click o.k. and your done. Gook luck.

It's windows that is stopping you, so if all else fails run Linux directly from a CD or DVD, access the hard disk and delete the files from there.

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks

No you don't have to uninstall Windows to run a Live Linux CD - it doesn't touch Windows at all. We can use an early version of "Puppy Linux" which doesn't even save any settings to Windows.

But firstly try unlocker as per #1 and report back.

If you want to make a start with Puppy, go here:
http://distro.ibiblio.org/puppylinu...
Click the file pup-431.iso and SAVE this download somewhere.

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks

Nero General Clean Tool - http://www.nero.com/enu/support/ser...

Oooops I just realized that this removal tool isn't for Nero 14.

@Dereck, both software installs 3rd party apps such as delta search that I consider annoying.

OK, next step (assuming you've downloaded the file) is burning it to CD. It is an image (.iso) compressed file so you don't just put the download straight onto the disk. Most burning software has a "Burn an image" feature and that is what you use. If it is not available then this little freebie will do it nicely:

There is a download tab top left.

Let me know when you have done this and we'll move to step 3.

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks

When you come back please let me have the make and model number of your computer.

Also, we might have to go into BIOS later. If you don't know how to, watch the screen while Windows is booting and see if it gives the key to press to enter Setup (BIOS). It is usually one of the F keys or the Del key.

EDIT:
One more Windows freebie worth trying:

As far as I know it doesn't foist any toolbars on you.

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks
