What path is showing?
Is it C:\
or is it
C:\_OTM

If it is the latter then you don't need to type in the cd part

I'm confused at to what you are looking at.
After rereading everything it seems you are at the C:\_OTM
directory already.
Is that right?

go here and get ...MoveOnBoot

MoveOnBoot allows you to copy, moves or delete files on the next system boot. This comes in very handy, if you need to replace or delete files which are locked by other applications, loaded into memory or cannot be changed until next system boot.

You could manually enter a line to the wininit files, but using MoveOnBoot is much simpler, since the program can be integrated into shell - it creates the "Copy/Move/Delete on boot" context menu item.
browse to the folder or files you want gone...right click on it and select delete ...reboot...they get deleted before windows or anything else gets a chance to lock them
