Deleting stuff

Is there anyway to get rid of some of the programs that WinXP PE adds that it won't let me manually or through add/remove programs delete....or can they be moved to my D drive? Things like Microsoft FrontPage, MSN Gaming Zone...
Ordinarily, I wouldn't care, but that's my boot drive, and I'm running out of room with the stuff it adds...and keeps adding. Thanks. :)

You can get rid of them by going into add/remove programs, then selecting windows components, uncheck the boxes for what you don't want and walla gone :)

It doesn't seem to let me do that....not all the things that were added are there. One thing I'm trying to get to there, IE repair, doesn't seem to work either. Thanks.

I"m having similar issues tryign to delete these same folders. I've turned off Windows file Protection to no avail. There must be some way to delete these folders - msn gaming zone, xerox, and microsoft frontpage. All are empty and all are claiming to be in use; safe mode and all other methods or attempts have failed, where's the sudo equivalent in windows?

Hey EP! All good with me, applying for Microsoft MVP right now, should have done this a while ago.

Notifications don't work, I only found your response by coming back to hunt up some threads, if you want, give me your email address so we can keep in touch easier!

EP, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there!
