Please sir! can I delete this folder?
I've taken ownership in all incarnations: Admin, User 1, All Users and any other bugger that wants to look!
Still I am told I need permission to delete it! Grrr.
I've managed to decimate the contents even though I'm denied the final victory, there are now only two ".dll" files left in the folder.
HOW do I get rid of it!!
Please!

Re-booted and was allowed to delete it.
What a palaver!
Anyway, sorted!

Have you been into Programme Files? If not then go to My Computer, left click on C drive and select Programme Files. Scroll down until you come to the programme you want out and open it. Now start deleting the files therein and with abit of luck you'll delete the lot.
Failing that try deleting with cCleaner.
