Are you sure you are in the right place? Your regions folder is in C:/<username>/documents/SimCity 4 Deluxe/Regions and not in program files, where you should keep your hands away.

    All downloaded custom content should go in the Documents subfolder under SimCity 4/Plugins with a sub-structure to make it easy to maintain. Nothing should be placed in the Program Files area except the sky textures that default to there. If you had multiple user ids on your machine, each one gets the stuff in the Program Files. Why would another user want some of your plugins?

    Also if you reinstall the game, everything in the program files/Maxis/SimCity 4 Deluxe folder gets replaced.
