Note The ie7 folder is a hidden folder.
That is the reason for your access denied error.
You will have to change the attributes before you can execute the command.
use the -h which removes the hidden attribute.
Changing file attributes with "attrib"
In addition to their actual content, files also have a set of properties that characterize them (sometimes called metadata.) One set of these properties are the four attributes read-only, hidden, system, and archive. The archive attribute is primarily used in backup procedures but the other three can be encountered in various contexts. These attributes can be turned on or off with the command "attrib" and its switches. The great utility of this command is that it can act on subfolders with its switch "/s" and can use the wildcard "*". For example, to clear the read-only , system, and hidden attributes from a file use attrib -r -s -h somefile
So as per my screenshot before you execute the commands to uninstall IE7 excecute the attrib -h for the folder IE7
That all said, it seems a terribly complicated way of activating windows.
It is a genuine installation I presume. If not and you are trying to get round the WVC for MGA - this forum does not help in anyway with matters of that nature.
