    I am running windows XP and have recently used 3 different spyware cleaners/blockers and I have some files in one of the target areas which I have been unable to get Rid of?
    Any suggestions would be appreciated. I am logged on a system administrator yet when I attempt to do anything to files, I.E. change from read only etc. I get error message. Ck for write protection unauthorized access o_Oo_O?? The 3 proggys I used are Adware, Pest Patrol and SpywareBlaster.

    Well I figured it out I created a bogus directory and accessed it through a tweak mechanism for XP we all remember as winfile and deleted the directory.
