Way I do it when XP is not letting me delete things is, throw the short file names into DOS and execute the bat before the shell starts.

Easiest way to get the short file name is to goto the directory in DOS for example 'C:\'
and type "dir /X" this will display a list of files in the C:\ and their shortfile names. Then I'd take those and go something like:
Code:
if exist C:\<shortfilename> rmdir /s /q C:\<shortfilename>
Then use a tool like StartupCPL to add it to run once or make a custom reg to run it once either/or lots of ways to do it.

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there https://tinyurl.com/ycpxl
