If you receive error code “0x80004002” and you can’t delete files, try doing it in Safe Mode. Restart your computer then press F8 before the Windows logo appears. In “Advanced Boot Options” screen, select “Safe Mode” then hit Enter. After logging in, try deleting the files then see if it works. Most of the users were able to fix it using this method.

The cause of the problem is the files that were getting saved when you visit websites with your web browser. If this doesn’t work and you often use Microsoft Internet Explorer, try resetting its settings. Click “Start,” “Control Panel,” “Network and Internet Connections” then “Internet Options.” In “Internet Properties” window, go to “Advanced” tab then click “Reset” at the bottom under “Reset Internet Explorer settings.”

On the next screen, click “Reset.”
