QooBox and BackEnv Permission denied

Couldn't delete BackEnv folder from inside the QooBox file, which I understand is created by Combofix. I found several posts which suggests using some other application to delete the folder, but I found it was a simple windows security issue. Here's what I did:

1. Right-click on BackEnv, select properties

2. Select security Tab (won't work in home versions, but if you have the pro version OS and that tab is missing, change your folder options and clear Use Simple File Sharing under the View tab).

3. You will note you have full control. Click the Advanced button. Note the first option is to deny Everyone.

4. Clear the Allow inheritable permissions from parent. It will ask if you want to copy, Select Remove button

5. Add the Administrator for the PC. You will not be able to save this change just yet.

6. Select Owner tab and take ownership using Administrator account. Then go back to Permissions and replace permission on all child objects and click OK

You should now be able to delete the folder without any problem.
