I just wanted to let you know that sp2 has already been installe a few
The problem is: it is not possible to wipe clean all the files and
in MSN Gaming Zone Directory. Some remaining files are not able to delete
(access denied) although I had gone to Control Panel and clicked on
Add/Remove Programs on that directory. It said it is all unistalled. But it
is not true because I can see some remaining files there on CMD. Let me
know if I need to specify what is all there. I know the solution is to
remove all there first! But how?
