Are you just deleting it, or actually uninstalling it? If you're not, try uninstalling it. If you've already done that and there are still files that won't go away, you'll have to go to the command prompt and delete them that way.

Yeah...I don't understand it, but I've had files in XP that I couldn't delete from the GUI. Deleting them from the command line worked. Doesn't really make any sense. Ghost of DOS, I guess.

you need to boot in dos then delete it that way. You can also try to remove it in safe mode. Make sure it uninstalled first of course.
