    No EDIT for Trusted Installer/Administrator permission


    I have followed the instructions from the Windows 7 forum on changing the owner/permissions for a file from Trusted Installer to Administrator but cannot see an EDIT button. I am trying to delete files associated with the Delta Search malware which was detected and deactivated by Malwarebytes.

    You may have to use Unlocker to delete those files left - And Malwarebytes detects a toolbar in the Unlocker installer as a Virus. Download Unlocker, disable malwarebytes active protection as you open it. Do a CUSTOM install, de-select the toolbar, then install Unlocker.

    You may not be able to change the permissions on the infected files or settings, but you can use Unlocker to delete anything left over.
