    Try booting into XP under safe mode and check add/remove programs and try to uninstall it that way...

    yes, I think booting in safe mode should allow you to delete the file.. you may still need to open the file's properties and make some changes to delete it.. also, I recommend getting Registry Cleaner to make sure all registry entries for the file are removed..

    You hopefully can remove the cerificate it installed by going to tools, Internet Options, Content, and Certificates.

    Usually when you try to delete a file such as that after you have uninstalled or deleted it's parent proggy and it says, "being used by xxx program" or something to that effect. You have to shut down and reboot and then it lets you delete it. In essence the system has released the file on the reboot.

    BTW... Don't let yer girlfreind use yer computer any more. :p
