    Hi,

    How do I delete a file in the windows system folder. Then, move a file from the c:\My Documents folder int the windows folder, all in MsDos.

    Because, one DLL is malfunctioning, and will never let you delete it or copy overwrite it.

    Any help please....

    Thanx

    Peter

    Try this:

    • Type "cd\" to get to your root drive (C:)
    • Type "cd\windows\system" to get to your System folder
    • Type "del filename.ext" to delete the file
    • Type "cd\" to get to your root drive (C:)
    • Type "cd\mydocu~1" to get to your My Documents folder
    • Type "copy filename.ext" to copy a file


    Hope that helps.

    If you ever get stuck in DOS type "help" and it will list available commands.

    I believe that you could've logged into Windows in Safe Mode, and it would let you do it without going through DOS.
