This file is hidden in WINDOWS and I cannot find away to delete it. I want it off my computer. How do I go about it.

I found it by going to RUN > cmd> OK> typed cd C:\ WINDOWS\Downloaded Programs File > dir and there it was in the list. How do I delete it?

Hi sluggo123 & welcome to the Forum

I don't use the command prompt that much but if my memory serves me
correctly all you had to do was highlight the entry you wanted to
remove & type delete>press enter & that zaps it. Try this at your
own risk.

Hope this helps.

Regards, wr

There is no risk - just select your OS from the list below:

Launch the command prompt from accessories in the programs list or go to Start>run> and type cmd in the box that appears.
