Can someone help me with deleting all the files from the 
\Cygwin directory?
I was able to delete about 99% of the files in the 
directories, but some files stated that they cannot be
deleted because "Access is Denied. Make sure the disk is 
not full or write protected." I tried everything from 'Safe 
Mode' to deleting with Cmd. All of these files are 
Shortcuts to some other files. Ex. d:\cygwin\etc\hosts 
cannot be deleted.
I even tried cutting them into the recycle bin. I am also 
sure that the shortcuts are not used by any programs or 
Any help would be appreciated!!!
