PSI finds remnants of Macromedia Flash Player 8.x on an external backup hard drive. When I try to delete, it requires administrator permission. I am logged in with administrator rights. How can I delete these files.

If the system demands more rights, you may not be THE administrative user. Login as "administrator" or try looking at the rights to those files. You could also try making an ignore rule.

I've logged in as Administrator and User with full administrator privileges. I still couldn't delete the files.

What are the file rights? Don't know if MS allows you to delete "read-only" files. Also, if you ARE the most powerful user, and still can't delete files, something is wrong. Either there is some super-admin account, or it's an MS issue.
