WGA Tool removal help!

  The Mountaineer 10:48 19 Oct 2009

I've got myself into a mess with my nephew. Just given him my old Rock Pegasus laptop and taught him about antivirus, firewalls, antispyware, updates, backups and windows updates. He's even started posting some of his problems on PCA!
But ...... I've taken on the cleaning up of his old PC with all the usual stuff (CCleaner, Defraggler etc etc) but have just discovered that having switched on Windows update the WGA tool has downloaded and started to tell us "not genuine etc". System restore hadnt been switched on so I searched the web for a removal process which I found but where the first step is to delete wgatray.exe in the sys32 folder. But it wont let me delete it. So, since in his country virtually nothing is genuine, can anyone tell me how to delete this file, or a simple method to get rid of the tool.
