It's a permissions issue, and so is a function of the file(s) you are trying to erase, and not of Eraser as such. For whatever reason, Windows is telling you that you do not have permission to erase the files in question. You fix that by restarting Eraser as Administrator, then, if you like, closing the Eraser window. You can still do context menu erasing when you are running as administrator, though you cannot do drag and drop erasing.Lech said:That's not the answer I was looking for. If to delete a file using Eraser, I can not do it out of context menu, but have to open the program as an Administrator and then move the file into the program to delete it, then the program doesn't really do what it's supposed to do and is pretty useless to me.
