Default msn gaming zone

I uninstalled MSN Gaming Zone (which, I believe comes pre-installed on XP), yet I cannot delete the folder "c:\program files\msn gaming zone" b/c windows is apparently still keeping note of it, i.e. an error message comes up saying that is it being used by another program. any suggestions as to how to get rid of this folder?

safe mode perhaps, however if something else is using it like messenger or something u may screw up something else

btw keep pushing f8 while ur computer is booting to get to safe mode if u didnt kno, u'll bring up the list of boot options

i would cut the folder and paste it somewhere else first to make sure everything is all good then delete it when ur sure
