When ever I try to delete files in the win sxs folder, it tells me that I need permission to do so, coud some one help me get that permission?


Which OS? If it is Vista then it is extremely hard but not impossible. You basically have to take ownership of the file because it has been installed by a trusted installer which makes it really hard. Once you have taken ownership then you should be able to delete it but it still takes some hoop jumping to do it. I tried for 3 days solid to get rid of one of the files in sxs under Vista before I finally found the magic bullet. Took a lot of searches of the Internet as well.
