So you can't dlete the dragon ball game, even in DOS?

Can you post the exact name, from DOS, of the file that won't delete, and I will give you a DOS command to try.

under properties it is empty, no size or size on disk, and when i come to delete it, it says cant find file

Try to run it, with a bit of luck windows will tell you that the program that it belongs to can no longer be found and would you like to delete it.

can you rename the folder, then delete?

how did you uninstall,

from the CD menu,

from the start\programs\game\uninstall,

from add\remove programs.

some things prefer to uninstall using the CD install\uninstall menu.

Sorry - I've been out all day (fixing systems!!)

Try this - in DOS go to the folder where the file you want to delete is.

Type exactly as shown

DEL rem?????.???

And see if the file goes. If it does, then you can probably remeove the now empty folder in Windows.
