SYSTEM owns All Users Folder

    I installed an Update from Adobe and they put the desktop shortcut in the All
    Users folder. I want to delete it from there but do not have rights, even
    when I sign on with my user account that has "full" admin rights. This user
    can delete the shortcut from his own desktop, but "regular" users accounts
    can't do this. I tried to take ownership of the folder but was not able to.
    1] What is the user SYSTEM, and can I log on as such?
    2] How do I get update rights to this folder so I can remove the shortcut
    to Adobe?
    3] What makes Adobe think anyone needs a shortcut to Reader on their desktop?
    Thanks,
    Frustrated in Carolina

    Only the statement "This folder is empty" appears in the folder.
