Cannot rename or delete files


Hi, I've tried SLAX and Backtrack but both will not rename a file in the system32 folder.

Say I want to rename 'file.ok' to 'file.hi' it says "Cannot delete 'file.ok" and says the same if I try to delete it.

I really need to do this tonight, any help would be SO appreciated. I can't modify the permissions (right click, properties, permissions) either.

THANK YOU!

Ah, I apologise, I thought I posted this on another site.

Sorry, could a mod merge?

Thank you.
