Error on delete


I am using 1.4 on win.7 x86. I have 362 errors. Last entry posted before error ( C:\Users\Family\Local Settings\Temp\80d96c1e-9886-4bc4-8d69-d7841bc2ebdf\AgileDotNetRT.dll) the error is ((5, 'MoveFileEx', 'Access is denied.') . Is there anything I can or should do about this ? Thanks


362 errors is odd. Are you running BleachBit with admin rights? If not, please try it with admin rights. If that doesn't work, try reinstalling BleachBit again to see if that fixes the issue. The files marked with ((5, 'MoveFileEx', 'Access is denied.') are files that BleachBit cannot delete because they are locked to the system. There is nothing that can be done about that.

I agree that admin rights should help. When BleachBit starts, Windows will ask you whether you want to use admin rights.

The error MoveFileEx means two things
1. The process cannot access the file because it is being used by another process
2. You do not have permission to queue the file to be deleted the next time Windows reboots

The first usually happens with Internet Explorer's index.dat files, and as ROCKNROLLKID pointed out, #2 is probably a lack of administrator rights.

If you do not get the prompt for admin rights or are not sure what is is, please let me know
