Exclamation pesky files

ok...i uninstalled winamp3 because it wasnt working. i tried downloading and reinstalling it but nothing worked. i finally went into program files and found files left in the winamp folder. specifically i found a folder named WACS that i cannot delete. i think this is the problem but i cant access it or delete the folder. when i try and delete it, it gives me the message 'Cannot delete wacs:directory is not empty' and when i try and open the folder, it gives me the message 'Error performing inpage operation' this bugs me because i listen to a lot of music and winamp is my favorite program...not to mention i dont like having files that i cannot delete or access on my computer. all help would be appreciated.
