Why can't I delete the "Adobe RoboHelp 10" folder on my Windows 7 Desktop?

May 21, 2013 6:07 AM

Today I downloaded and installed a trial of Adobe RoboHelp 10.


After installation I ended up with a folder called "Adobe RoboHelp 10" on my Desktop.


But when I try to delete this folder I get a windows 7 error "You require permissions from ... to make changes to this folder".




I am logged in as Administrator (There is only one account on my machine so for all I understand I am logged in as the one I am instructed to require permissioons from?).


I am running Windows 7 on a Paralells instalaltion on MAC. But for all I can tell my Desktop is not located on the MAC (network drive).


Why has RoboHelp 10 installations created a folder I do not have priviliges to change on my desktop?


How do I delete this folder?


Please give me a clue. This is driving me mad...

    If I am correct this file contains the unzipped download, there will be setup.exe file in it. It normally deletes OK. Try rebooting first.
