Hey guys new to the forums i am having a problem right now i am unable to delete a vista folder. Its in the start menu under all programs its a battlefield 2 folder and i have no idea how to get rid of it. Its not even giving me the option to delete the folder all i can do is right click it and have the option to expand or collapse the folder where the hell is the delete button. When i try to move the file into another folder i get an error message stating that "could not find this item. This is no longer located in C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\windows\Start Menu\Programs\Games. Verify the items location and try again." I tryed booting into safe mode to delete it and still i don't even get the option. i tried to use unlocks 1.85 and nothing this is a hard file to get rid of. Any type of help would be great i'm pulling my hair out.

Try right clicking the task bar, going to start menu tab, selecting classic start menu, then reenabling the normal start menu to see if it gets rid of it.

If that fials try disabling the UAC and deleting it (control panel > user accounts > Turn User ACcount Control on or off)
