I'm trying to delete the file C:\Windows\system32\FlashPlayerCPLApp.cpl because of this link to do a clean Flash Player install. However I am having problems deleting it. It says: cannot delete FlashPlayerCPLApp: Access is denied. Make sure the disk is not full or write-protected and that the file is not currently in use. How do I delete this file???
