    wanting to delete .mui file in Program directory

    yes, i want to delete this file located in the C:\Program Files\WindowsSidebar\en-US\sbdrop.dll.mui

    but i cannot delete it, it say i dont have rights. So i tried using "cmd, run as admin" but when command prompt loads up it shows"c:\Windows\System32", how can i get it to load as "C:\Program Files" since the folder i want to delete is in there.
    Suggestions are more than welcome. thanks...

    You need to click the link on z3r010's post and read the instructions. Then try it again. Try method 2. Some people find graphical clicking easier than typing.
