    Try running filemon whilst you run the utility and look for the entries that come back with an error on the delete....

    There will probably be a fair bit of output, so to minimise it
    - run the utility once so it can delete everything it can
    - start filemon and monitor just that process (using a filter)
    - run the utility again and see what you get

    Get filemon from Sysinternals http://www.sysinternals.com
