Removing SP2 Archived Files

#1
What's the best way to go about deleting all of the files that SP2 archived? Can I just delete the folder? Would I also have to find the uninstall registry entry and remove that? Anything else to do? Is there some better way?
 
#2
I just deleted the folder and removed the Add/Remove Programs entry from the registry. Had no problems ever since, so it should be safe =)

It's saying Access Denied: Files in use... I'm guessing safe mode will do the trick? But why is it using some of my old files? :-/

Which folder are you trying to delete?

You can delete the C:\Windows\$NtServicePackUninstall$ folder without a problem. (As long as you are sure you don't want to uninstall SP2.)

Don't delete the C:\Windows\ServicePackFiles directory. That one is the sp equivalent to system32\dllcache.
