The c:\Program Files" folder of Windows Vista and 7 is very special. Regular users are not allowed to delete/modify files on it and Windows is capable of restore any changes done to it.

It may happens that next time you restart the system, your modified file will be replaced with a shadow copy of the original installed one.

So if you are about to change a system configuration file, the best advice is to install the program in a regular folder (like for example d:\games).
