another permissions Q

Wife bought a new laptop. I am having distinctly unpleasant time trying
to figure out how to use and administer it. For something that's supposed
to be user-friendly, the learning curve is ridiculously steep.

Anyhow, probably a simple question:

I have an admin account, yet 8.1 still won't let me delete leftover update
files from /windows/software distribution/download/
The permissions for admins for that directory are set to "full" but it
still denies a delete. Even when I change permissions to allow everyone
full control of that directory, the stupid OS still won't alow a delete.

What's up witrh this and how can I fix it?

Thanks,

DK

Have you tried asking in alt.comp.os.windows-8?
