Access Denied: can it be overridden?

  MichaelPaul 16:04 04 Oct 2004

I have successfully deleted the whole of the search engine 'blinkx' except for two files: importslave and, which appear to be filters and which return the message 'Access Denied' when I try to delete them. Can this be overruled, or might I as well leave them where they are?

They may be in use in the background therefore stopping you from deleting them. Try booting in safe mode and delete from there.
