Removing w7 files

I have been using the RC of W7 in a dual boot with Vista.
Since I am due to recieve the full version next month I have removed the trial version files and used easyBCD to remove W7 from the bootup.

Problem is I still have two files which won't allow me to delete them (flash10b.ocx and flashutil10b.exe) both read only. They allow me to move them from folder to folder but not to flash drive :-))

I've tried everything I can think of, run as administrator, take ownership of files etc.

Has anyone got any ideas?

Thanks
John

why dont you just format the partition you used for win7.

I can't do that because I have lots of data on that partition.
Probably should have used an empty partition to start with in hindsight.
Thanks anyway, anyone else got any ideas?

Finally got it.
I right clicked on each file, properties, security, advanced settings and then changed the settings for "everyone" which allowed me to delete the files.
