We started having attachments being stripped with Forefront saying that the reason for the removing of the attachment is an EngineError.  Looking at the event viewer I found that VirusBuster had failed installing its latest update.  I looked online and found that to sometimes resolve the issue is to remove the offending engine folder and then update again.  I try to delete the VirusBuster folder, but it says that I do not have permissions even though I am logged on with the Administrator account.  This is on SBS 2008 machine.  What am I doing wrong?  Thanks for any help.

When you browse to this folder using windows explorer did you start it with elevated permission( ie explorer started with Run as Administrator rights )
