ProgramFiles is a variable at the DOS/ System level -- to see the list of variables at a prompt type SET and <Enter>
Typically it is like this:
------------------------------------------------------
ProgramFiles=C:\Program Files
------------------------------------------------------

So at the prompt you may sometimes need to wrap a path in quotes if it has spaces in it. Try this:
------------------------------------------------------
"%ProgramFiles%\Microsoft SQL Server\90\Setup Bootstrap\ARPWrapper.exe" /Remove
------------------------------------------------------
