Deleting files Via Script
I am having trouble trying to script delete of files from program files via a script so i can set it up as a gpo , but i am stuck as i can't work out how to get it to just agree to delete the files and not prompt each time it finds a file. i did look at VBS but it confuses me!
does any one have a script they can send me?

if you are using the del command in a bat file add '/Y' (not quotes) to the command string. That should auto-answer 'yes' for you.
del C:\* /Y

I tried that it just says invalid switch y?

Ooops, it'd be a /Q then for 'quiet mode'. Really you'd have thought the MS-Dos programmers would have gone for common switches between commands!
