Hi dalchina,

I have tried both the above. Using the command prompt I get 'Access is denied' listed numerous times
and with MoveonBoot the files always remain...

I'm tearing my hair out
Hi there's no reason that should happen.
If you delete the files from outside Windows, Windows protection does not apply.
This is what should work:

1. Boot from your installation disk (not your installed Windows)
2. Select Repair
3. Navigate to a command prompt via Troubleshooting
4. Locate what you want to delete
5. Delete it
6. Check it's gone.

Emco's worked for me - the idea is it deletes it early in the boot sequence before Windows protection applies.
