No Delete After System Suite

A few weeks ago I purchased V-Com's SystemSuite for my computer (Windows ME is my OS). I'm not the most computer-literate person and it caused me all sorts of problems. I called Best Buy where I purchased it and the salesperson I talked to said it wasn't the most user-friendly and recommended Norton Anti-Virus (virus protection was what I was mostly concerned about). Anyway, the problem is that now I've uninstalled System Suite and I cannot delete ANYTHING off my computer! When I try to delete, a little window pops up and tells me, "Cannot delete. Access is denied. The source file may be in use." What can I do?

That Didn't Help!

I tried deleting some things in safe mode. I got the very same error message. Anyone have any other suggestions?

Try deleting it from DOS if

it is available, boot into a DOS prompt.. Then find the directory and file and type del and hit enter.

Why not use the free AVG anti-virus

program. Go to and download it.

Check at our virus forum if you have any doubt about how good it is.
