I tried to update iTunes today. I was putting it off for a while, and in the process, it wont let me because CommonFiles/Apple/Core/core.dll is protected. I tried going in and removing ReadOnly, and that didn't work. But it caused iTunes to stop working, and the icon for it dissapeared.
I tried reinstalling it, and I get the same error. I tried deleting the entire Apple Folder too, and I don't have the permissions. How do I get this shit back on the computer?
1. Uninstall the old iTunes
2. Install the new iTunes.
The folders/files that don't delete properly are just protected because you're not the "owner".
What you can do is right click on the file/folder that is giving you trouble.
Goto the security tab then advanced.
Goto the owner tab click edit and select your user. Click the check box that says: replace owner on subcontainers and objects.
Apply and okay your way back out and removing the read-only file attribute.
When I put the computer to sleep, despite me being the only user, I have to click on user Daniel (that's me.) It says that Daniel has Read and Execute, and Administrator (Daniel) has full control to burn the folder to the ground.
If I only see one user to click on, how do I change from User Daniel to Administrator Daniel?
If that doesn't work try this: http://www.howtogeek.com/howto/windows-vista/how-to-delete-a-system-file-in-windows-vista/ Same this as I posted above.
Also try in safe mode.
