Windows 2000 5.0 Build 2195

Guys, it's SecuRom. It designed those files to be essentially undeletable.

I would try
del %appdata%/SecuRom/*
Via the command line, although I'm not sure if that's the command I used to remove those files I had before

I'd probably try too.

UGH. I just can't remember what I did to delete those files.

Google "Unlocker" (it's the first hit) Oddly, I cannot present a direct link to the unlocker site because this board alters the content of its http address like so: http://ccollomb.********/unlocker/
