Can't delete filterpipelineprintproc.dll
I can't delete the filterpipelineprintproc.dll in the recycle bin. When I
view the contents of the Recycle folder it is empty. If I try to empty it I
get the following error:
Cannot delete filterpipelineprintproc: Acess is denied.
Make sure the disk is not full or write protected and that the file is not
currenly in use.
Solution is actually quite simple. It's a well known fact that this entire folder is getting "stuck as ashes" after that particular Windows update (something with XPS and/or .NET Framework)
Anyways. To be able to delete this folder, usually located in %SYSTEMROOT% as random letters and digits, simply Start / Run / cmd.exe
Enter the following:
cacls.exe c:\foldername /T /G yourwinaccname:F
You will now be able to delete the folder.
Yes, I know that in your post you mention the file lying in the recycle bin, which I presume is by you, originally trying to wipe it through recycle bin. First "restore" the file from Recycle bin -> c:\1a32e... (or whatever foldername it had), since I'm not really sure about how to change Windows file permissions on files in Trash.
Re: Can't delete filterpipelineprintproc.dll
I stumbled across this thread after having the same problem of being unable to delete filterpipelineprintproc.dll during a system tidy-up.
The CACLS command from Gew worked a treat, so that's definitely one to remember, thanks!
