You can always use this registry tweak.

This is a tool that will let you add a value to the right click menu called delete on reboot. This will get rid of stubborn files that refuse to be deleted such as, uninstalled applications, viruses, and much more.

Download This Registry File

Save the file to your desktop and once it is downloaded, right click it and click merge. You will get a message that confirms your actions, click ok. It will then merge. And from there on out, there will be a delete on reboot key whenever you right click a file.

Note: you need winrar, to extract the file and run it.

please see above,

you need winrar, to extract the file and run it.

rarlabs.com and download winrar.

Edit: Im sorry guys, i messed up......here the correct url the other one was trying to go to http://http://www.techsomething.net/Downloads/regedit.rar, 2 http:'s

Here the good url

If it still doesnt work here are advanced instructions.

Anyway ill give more advanced instructions:

Open a new notepad, and copy the following into it.

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\*\shell\Delete on reboot\command]
@="CMD /E:OFF /C REG ADD HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\\SOFTWARE\\Microsoft\\Windows\\Currentversion\\RunOnce /v \"Del %1 OnNextReboot\" /d ^\"cmd.exe /c DEL /F /Q \\\"%1\\\"\" /f\""


[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Folder\shell\Delete on reboot\command]
@="CMD /E:OFF /C REG ADD HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\\SOFTWARE\\Microsoft\\Windows\\Currentvers

Once its in the notepad and everything looks good, click file...then save as
Save the file as regedit.reg and make sure the all files menu says all files instead of .txt

Save it to your desktop, so you can access it. Once its on the desktop double click it and it will ask you for confirmation to merge to the registry. Click yes, then reboot your computer and you will now have a delete on reboot entry added to your rigth click menu.
