    Here's the issue:

    I installed a demo of a video editing program (Sony Vegas).

    I uninstalled it, ran CCleaner (registry cleaner), and all seemed well, except that the folder that I installed it in is still there!

    So, when I chose to delete it, I get a warning saying "Renaming, Removing, or deleting 'Folder' could make some programs not work. Are you sure you want to do this?"
    I click YES.

    Then I get "Can't delete Mcmpgdec.dll - Access denied. Make sure the disk is not fully write protected or currently in use."

    Anyone got any ideas how I can get rid of this sucker? Like I said, I already ran CCleaner.

    Thanks :)

    I take it you have already tried deleting the file in Safe Mode?

    Use Killbox. Select the dll, and click "Delete on reboot"

    probably a simple regsvr32 /u mcmpgdec.dll in the cmd windows (browsed to that directory of course) should allow you to delete the file.

    Deleting it in safe mode worked - thanks :)
