    I keep being denied when trying to delete certain files or folders or even move them for that matter. I know I have seen a program that grants access to do anything and everything like moving/deleting the files so I can stop getting this annoying error message. I do have admin rights.

    Can anyone give me the name of the program?

    I've never used Total Commander, but I have used Unlocker and have had great success with it.

    I use Ultimante Windows Tweaker. Version for Vista and 7 and think there is a version for 8 and 8.1. Doesn't require installation and is freeware. Under "additional tweaks" there is a checkbox to add "take ownership" to the right click context menu. I have been able to do just about anything with files and folders using that command. Tons of other tweaks for Windows such as removing those annoying shortcut arrows from desktop icons. Find it to be a pretty useful little app.

    You could probably use robocopy with the /purge flag to deal with the files. This is accomplished by creating an empty directory to compare to.

    Probably more involved than you were looking for, but my preference is to not install programs if I can accomplish the same thing from windows directly.
