Hey Kix Team..
having an issue with a stubborn file in system32,
I just want to simply use the KIX logon for when the user logons, it will delete the one file, not a folder..
not sure I am getting the syntax correct, and just using simple DEL not doing it..
any suggestions?

Post the code that you are trying, and maybe we can spot an issue with it. It may also be a rights issue. Are you sure the user logging in has rights to delete files from the sys32 folder?

What operating system as well? Windows 10 is going to be a bit more stringent on removing a file from that location than say XP

That is not a location you would normally want a regular user to have access to add or delete files.

Perhaps you can remotely delete the file or schedule it for removal on reboot
