Forefront Virus Buster Engine Update Error

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.
