    I am trying to delete some prgram files on Vista. I am the only user, and I
    have unchcked the "user account control". Everytime I try it sates it has to
    be verified and then it comes up stating access denied.
    it seems a little odd I cannot delete program files on my own computer.
    Any assistance would be appreciated

    I'm getting this same problem. AVG Network edition (kept on after I upgraded
    from XP Pro) hasn't been working, so I have tried several times to uninstall
    it. It SAYS it was successfully uninstalled, but whenever I go into Program
    Files to delete the folder, everything's still there. I try to delete the
    folder anyway and it gives me the same error message.
