Can a MDW file which relates to a specific app be deleted?

P: n/a
Hi
I am a security newbie. My question is: can a MDW file which relates
to a specific MDB app be deleted by a user and thereby remove the
security from that app?

Security can be removed, but deleting the MDW file alone isn't sufficient.

See section 34 of the Access Security FAQ at

If security was done properly (often not the case), then the file will only be
accessible when using an appropriate MDW file. If there is only one appropriate
MDW file (usually the case), then deleting that MDW file would make the MDB file
totally inaccessible (except to those with security hacking tools).
