If you know the file name and where it is then just FileDelete(). If you want to step through the files with a wildcard name the FileFindFirstFile() and FileFindNextFile can help you there. Also using @ComSpec using it's Dir or Del command with StdOut can do it quick and easy. Depends on what your needs are exactly.

the file is called config.cfg. and it exist in some dirs

the problem is that i don`t know exactly in witch folder are. (the parent folder is for example c:\home)

If you want to delete any config.cfg files in c:\home and it's subdirs then use this

RunWait('"' & @ComSpec & '" /c Del /s/f/q config.cfg', 'c:\home')

/s does subdirs.... Use Del /? at a Command Prompt for further help.
