Default delete files

Hi,
i have recently installed a program, it was crap so i uninstalled it. But it left some files behind, and being the person i am i want to get rid of them. im using the kill command in VB, but they are write protected so i can't right click and delete, will the kill command delete write protected files.
Thanx

Haha; why would you want to get rid of Microsoft Files on Windows? If they're on there they have a use.

If you hate Microsoft so much - don't use Windows.
