Search Program Recommendations ? And Getting System Permission To Del

Hello,

a. Might anyone suggest a free "good" SEARCH program similar to Agent Ransack ?
The W7 one is quite poor, IMHO.

Agent Ransack is good, very good, but it will not allow me to Delete a zillion old files that it found and that I would like to purge.

b. Also, some of them, when I do try to Delete them, says SYSTEM permission Required.
They are in the System Folder, but I definitely know that they can be purged safely.
How do I get System Permission to do so ?

Thanks,
Bob
