Thanks for the info, but this sucks. I am going to blow torch my PC.
this will do it for you

ATTRIB -R -S -A -H "C:\Windows.old\Users\NeKroSoft13\AppData\Roaming\ SecuROM\UserData\*"

DEL "C:\Windows.old\Users\NeKroSoft13\AppData\Roaming\ SecuROM\UserData\*"

just change the path to correct place
Windows 8 the next big failure, right after Windows ME
