In order to delete a write protected file, simply right click the file and press 'delete'. It should then end up in your trash bin on your desktop.

Without removing write protection you cannot do that.

You can delete saved files off of a floppy (usually A: drive). If the file is write-protected, only the account who locked it can unlock it and delete it.

If you hit the ALT key and under tools, click on Folder options, under view, uncheck: Hide Protected Operating System Files Go to the transparent files and delete select all the files inside to delete. Do NOT Delete the Folders or Other Files Besides These!

It depends on what kind of files are in the CD's folder. If it's a CD that was purchased with software in the folders, you probably cannot delete the folder as the files within it are write-protected against accidental deletion. If the CD is something you created and your account has full rights to the files within, you should be able to delete the folder. If it gives you an error that the folder cannot be deleted because it is not empty, delete the contents first, then the folder.
