I can reproduce it EVERY time I use jv16 PT......

Please find attached the TCMD Tasklist output. Are you familiar with TCMD / TCC?

It seems that the files you are attempting to delete are protected against deletion by some means that the File Deleter cannot undo. I'm afraid I can't fix the issue unless there is a way to reproduce this in, for example, an install fresh Windows system so I can test and study it.

Is there a log file where I can view the return/error codes? I don't understand why I can delete a file in Windows Explorer but not with File Deleter?

I could build a special version that has more logging enabled for this tool. If I do that, would be you be willing to run that and send me the log file?

Yes - I am more then 100% willing to do almost anything to help solve this issue - maybe less then doing a fresh OS install.....

Thank you! I shall try to have a private test version ready for you tomorrow. It doesn't attempt to fix the issue yet, but it will create a log file so I could try to see what causes this.
