Can't get files to delete

3 posts in this topic

Hello,

Below is a my first Autoit script. There are a few areas that will not work. I have marked these commands in the script. The problem is with the FileDelete commands. The files will not delete. I understand that if they are in use that they wouldn't be able to be deleted. However, if I open a DOS prompt and delete the files, they delete fine. Same through Windows Explorer. To delete the files in the C:\Temp directory, I had to resort to deleting the entire folder and then re-creating it. Can anyone help me with these?

Thanks.

RunAsSet() has only an effect on Run() and RunWait(), so the command FileDelete(@WindowsDir & "\*.dmp") will fail if the user who started the script has no permisson to delete the file. Search the forum for RunAsSet for a solution to your problem. What you need is a script that restarts itself with admin privileges. Search for "+RunAsSet +restart".

Here is a small part of my cleaner

You went for cleaning...and alot of use of the registry??

I went for (safety) restore point, adware, spyware, cleaning temps, cleaning registry, and then defrag... later it had a disappearing top menu bar... and now it has top menu bar "skins"...
