Hi wise_epl!


Have you tried this command?

del /f /s /q /ar /as /ah /aa "c:\program files\microsoft security client\old mse\*.*"

If yes, but with no results, try this:

1) Move "old mse" folder (and its content) in c:

2) rename "old mse" folder, and every folder inside it, with a shorter name, for example:

old mse --> a

second folder --> b

and so forth

3) open the command prompt and type:

(following commands are needed to change directory and path)
c: (press enter)
cd\ (press enter)
(following command is needed to change the "old mse" folder attributes, if you have changed it to "a")
attrib -r -s -h c:\a
cd a (press enter) <--- a in this case is the name of the old mse folder)
(following command is needed to change every file/folder attributes inside the old mse folder)
attrib -r -s -h *.* /s /d
(now we try to delete all files)
del /f /s /q /ar /as /ah /aa "c:\a\*.*"

If previous commands won't work:

- If you have got hijackthis (click), (scan the unzipped folder with your antivirus), open it, open the misc tools section, delete a file on reboot..., choose your folder, and confirm every action.

- malwarebytes antimalware has got a similar function (fileassassin)

- download unlocker portable 1.9.0 version (click), unzip the x86 folder, (scan the unzipped folder with your antivirus), and, finally, use the program (unlocker.exe) to delete the old mse folder (now renamed a).


Hope this (finally) helps!
