Permissions in Windows 7

I cannot get Eraser to erase unused space on a hard drive because of the permissions. Even when I run Eraser as administrator, it errors out. Any suggestions? Sorry for the beginner question. I just got Windows 7 and the new Eraser (I liked XP and the old Eraser a lot better)

Please follow viewtopic.php?f=35&t=5309, with the caveat of exiting Eraser first before proceeding with those steps.

I am having the same problem with windows 7 professional and eraser 6.08 - will not erase unused space, even when using run as administrator approach.

It'll be good if you attach the task log, that will help us pinpoint the error for you. Of course, what's important to note is that one must always exit Eraser before starting the new instance as an administrator.
