    When F-Secure was giving away a 1-year license, I briefly used it, but then uninstalled. However, it left behind a locked quarantine folder in Program Data. I've tried changing permissions, etc. to delete it, as well as using BlitzBank, but I can't get rid of it. I also tried the F-Secure Removal Tool yesterday, but not only did it fail to get rid of it, it left its own folder and files I can't delete! They are not causing problems, but I still want to get rid of them. Any ideas?

    @ronjor. I knew that was an option but I hate having tons of online accounts.

    @wtsinnc. I tried that yesterday, but it only accepts files, not folders?

    You are correct. Sorry.

    Can you use File Assassin to access the files inside the folders you want to delete ?
