Can't delete the "MSN Gaming Zone" folder from program files!!!!

Hello all! This is something that i noticed some time ago, but was recently reminded of. In my programs files there is a folder titled "MSN Gaming Zone". I am unable to delete this folder! When i try i get the "Access is Denied.... etc.." message. I can go in to the folder and delete most of its contents, but as fast as i delete them, they pop right back up! It has games like solitare...etc.. in the folder. Whats up with this folder, why can't i delete it? Is there something vital to my system in it? Do i need it for any other reason than to play solitare?

Also, can anyone tell me what these programs are? Are they useful/relavent? Or just taking up space?

Thanks in advance for your help!!!!

"Unlocker" is a tool claimed to get rid of those messages.

ICQ quoted amongst other things as an "instant messaging computer program".  Would need a little more detail to be sure.  Hope that helps:

Hi,

The "MSN Gaming Zone" and the "Xerox" folders are protected folders (Windows File Protection) and they simply regenerate automatically after deleting it using third-party tools.

You could just uncheck Internet Games in Add/Remove Programs\Add Remove Windows Components
