This tree is owned by "SYSTEM" so that the venus running as a service and
running as SYSTEM has control of it.  You should be able to remove this
changing owner to your administrator user and then removing it.

  Using Windows explorer you need take ownership of your /usr/coda directory
and make sure you include all sub-objects.   Using cygwin you should be
able to "chown -R administrator /usr/coda".   At that point administrator
owns the files and can be deleted.
