Secunia PSI indicates that two obsolete folders containing only one file (ATL80.dll) belonging to Microsoft Visual C++ 2005 Redistributable Package (x86) are insecure. Since I have version 2008 installed, I removed the 2005 version. However, the uninstall left behind a couple of 2005 folders containing the ATL80.dll files. Attempts to delete those folder, even in Safe Mode and signed on as Administrator, results in "access denied".

The folders are subfolders of \Windows\Winsxs. My OS is Win XP SP3. Computer is a Dell P4HT.

How can I get rid of these files?

Delete them as a system admin? The message is clear, access denied. It means you need more privileges.

Assorted Fnords.
