System32 files retrieval Query

Hi all,

I have a query. Suppose I have deleted some system32 files, which is part of my application, after installing my application.I want to know that why system32 files are retrieved when advertised shortcut is launched in user account, inspite of the fact that users do not have rights to write in system32 folder.

Start Task Manager (or a proper task monitor, like Process Explorer) and set the option to watch the user account which is executing the processes. Then click your shortcut and watch the MSIEXEC.EXE processes. Make a mental note of the account which is executing each process.
