Admin can't delete a folder?

Hi all,
I'm a Win2000 professional user - sP 4. I can't delete some folders in
e:\inetpub\wwwroot\...\.
I've created them by FrontPage2000 SR1. I enter Windows as Administrator,
then I should be able to
create /delete all objects. On the contrary, each time I attempt to erase
the assigned folder Windows
warns me so:
"Access is denied. The source file may be in use."

Thanks in advance.

Wrong. You have the right, as Admin, to take ownership for anything you do
not have ownership/rights of and then you can assign yourself rights to
delete any object. Admin rights, at the file system level, only has inherit
rights if inherit rights are set. If explicit rights have been assigned,
then Admin rights can be removed by owner with those rights.

This is not a rights issue. Have you tried stopping the virtual server
before trying to remove the folders?

ASP probably won't help you in this case, but posting in a Windows
administration group probably would. Ask for an explanation of rights
and the Take Ownership option.
