I made a complete backup of my computer files from XP version before installing Vista Home Premium. After a few few frustrating hours, I finally got Vista installed (a Reltek driver gave me the BSOD). After getting Vista up and running I installed Acronis TrueImage 9. I clicked on Recovery file and chose the 40 gig .tib "backup" file. I knew I didn't want to "restore" XP system files so I chose "Restore specific files and folders". I chose to restore to "New Location" which is on my labeled G:drive. Rather than select specific files (big mistake) I chose to restore all of it to the G: drive. I picked out the files and documents I needed and copied them over to my C: drive. Now I want to delete the big "restored" files. It seems some are protected and I can't delete them. I booted Vista in the "safe mode" and was able to delete a few but not all. See attached picture of files I can't delete. Folders in Drive(C) I can't delete. (Notice, I can change the name of the folder Windows to Windowsx) I've tried several freeware programs to "delete on next boot" but they won't delete. The BIG bomb was when I tried to uninstall TrueImage 9. After uninstalling it the BSOD came up so fast I had no idea what the error was. Even the safe mode would not boot. I was able to re-insert the Vista upgrade DVD and get it back to a Vista "restore" point. It seems Acronis has somehow integrated those files with the C:drive and Vista system files. I've also gone into the startup files and disabled all Acronis programs. Vista boots OK, but I still can't delete the files. Uninstalling TrueImage 9 causes the PC the crash. Any help would be appreciated!!
