    Win 8, (VM win7, XP, Vista)

    First get a hold of a little program called "Take Ownership then install it." This will help in deleting the Windows files. Next just start deleting the files. If you are unable to delete a file then right click and choice "take ownership then attempt to delete the file again. This takes a little work so don't get upset when a file won't delete. If you need more help just stand by and we will help you.

    By the way "Welcome to the Eight Forums. . .
