    hello,
    i've installed Iis earlier for local hosting purposes and now that i dont need it anymore, i've uninstalled it but i cant seem to delete the inetpub folder.
    whenever i try deleting it, i receive this:

    cannot delete 00000002.ps1. it is being used by another program..

    are there any ways that i can delete it?
    thanks.

    Are you certain you uninstalled all of IIS via Add/Remove Windows Componenets?

    Maybe log in through Safe Mode and delete it?

    You probably have the IIS service running still. I assume you've rebooted since uninstalling IIS? Go through your services list and make sure it's no longer enabled, and if so, reboot into Safe Mode as yin said. If nothing else, go to www.sysinternals.com and use the Pendmoves tool to set the files to be removed before the system boots anything.
