Default Re: Can't delete windows.old folder after Vista upgrade

I searched the SecuRom site just out of curiousity to see if this issue was noted anywhere. It wasn't. I then emailed them about the issue and about them not mentioning or addressing it on their site. I got a reply back from them basically stating that no one should do a Windows 7 install with the option to create a Windows.old folder. Problem solved! Jeez. Then they provided a link for the SecuRom removal tool that is not at all the solution to this issue as it will nuke all active SecuRom files as well. It was about the response I was expecting but I had to give it a shot anyway.
