Cannot Delete Folders in Windows Vista

Sometimes when deleting a folder first the UAC fires up and you’re asked to continue. Then the user is prompted “Cannot delete Folder: It is being used by another person. Close any programs that might be using the file and try again”. Of course other prompts you might see include:

  • “Cannot delete file: Access is denied”
  • “There has been a sharing violation”
  • “The source or destination file may be in use”
  • “The file is in use by another program or user”
  • “Make sure the disk is not full or write-protected and that the file is not currently in use”

First let’s figure out the Problem:

Let’s say you have the main folder named ‘folder1‘, and in it there’s another folder aka ‘folder2‘. You try to delete folder1 but an Access Denied prompt is loaded. What should I do? There are three solutions..

Sync Outlook with Windows Live Calendar For Free!

During this last week, Microsoft released a new version of its Microsoft Outlook Connector. This happened to add support for the recent update done on Windows Live Calendar which is still in Beta.

With this update you can now sync multiple Windows Live Calendars with Microsoft Office Outlook 2003 or Office Outlook 2007. You can now take advantage of Outlook’s great calendar and time management features and still access your schedule on the web anytime, and anywhere… and always for free (ok you need to buy outlook first… although there are other ways to get outlook… like… maybe some special… very special promotions… :)…!! )

For those that never used the Windows Live Calendar Beta, you can access it on this web address: It has a fast and functional Ajax user interface providing a rich experience on the web… supporting many new features making Outlook look even better!!

Check out the How To? after the break… Continue reading

New Windows Vista Ads – “Windows, Not Walls”

Microsoft is launching its new Windows Vista ads next September 4th which will cost Microsoft about $300 million. Apparently these new ads are going to be titled “Windows, Not Walls”, and will feature Jerry Seinfeld and also… Bill Gates (preview his audition movie after the break).

Personally I love Windows Vista… at home i use the Vista Ultimate 64-bit Edition and let me tell you… it’s awesome! Till now… it never crashed, has a very fast startup… anyway let’s continue on the ads…

The new ads’ goal is to reverse the negative public perception of Windows Vista done by Apple’s Get A Mac ads  (and let me tell you… from my experience, most of those ads are not even near the truth… but most people beleive everything…). The new campaign is said to be one of the largest campaings in Microsoft’s History. Continue reading
