how to remove convert.exe from windowsXP

I am trying to run an ant file that runs Imagemagick convert, but it always runs the Windows XP
convert.exe that is in c:\windows\System32\. I will never use that file, so I tried to delete it, but
Windows always recreates the file. I can't change the ant file to modify the path.

Hi!

Delete convert.exe from dllcache folder first, then from folder system32 and it won't be restored.

where is the dllcache folder?

Toni UranjekConsultant/TrainerCommented:
in C:\Windows\system32 and it's blue, because these files are compressed.

The dllcache\ folder doesn't show in Windows explorer, even when I say show hidden and system folders. But I could cd to it from a DOS prompt.
I also got a warning:
"Files that are required for Windows to run properly have been
replaced by unrecognized versions. ..."
but I hit cancel.

Thanks for the quick response and correct answer.

You have to clear check box to show "protected system files" to see this folder in Windows Explorer.
