What the Shell is wrong here?

I'm trying to execute a DOS shell command within my script to clear the 
read-only file attribute of a file that has been copied from a CD (I'm 
delivering the app on a CD and need to make one of the stacks writable).

Based on previous posts on this subject, I'm using a command that 
evaluates to:

get shell ("attrib -r" && "C:\Documents and Settings\IFTF\My 
Documents\Consumer Segmentation\resources\Process Guide Steps.rev")

I've proven that the path is correct for the file I'm trying to affect. 
If I type this command into the Message box however, I get this error 

Script Compile Error.
Error Description: Script: missing "" after literal

I can't figure out where the problem is and what the error message means.

Little help?
