You do realise that the existence of these files when the WPS is
up and running is normal, don't you ? Please define "remain".
VB> How do you run these commands in config.sys?
I don't. I run such commands from \CONFIG\SYSTEM\INIT.RUN, or
as one-shot services.
I assume that you really mean "How _can I_ run these commands
That depends from whether you use only IBM's 16-bit command
The DEL command is built in to IBM's 16-bit CMD. So to invoke it via
a "RUN" directive in \CONFIG.SYS you have to actually invoke IBM's
16-bit CMD instructing it to (in turn) invoke the DEL command.
With the 32-bit CMD, the DEL command is an ordinary program, DEL.EXE,
which you can invoke via a "RUN" directive just as you would invoke
any other program. (With the 32-bit CMD, the DEL command also has an
/A option that you can use, obviating the need for your invoking the
ATTRIB command beforehand.)
