Default Stuck in partially rooted vicious circle on TF201

I had root on my TF201. Had to send the POS back to Asus, they flashed new OS, killed my root, but it appears to have left behind files or an SU Binary & Superuser.apk. So, when I try to use new root methods - Motochopper or Kingo - it fails despite both showing I am rooted. So, since I am not rooted, and thus do not have proper permissions to remove files, I cannot remove the old Superuser.apk or SU. So it is kind of an ugly circle. No root means no ability to get rid of old root files to try to do a clean root, but yet the newer root exploits see me as rooted and so.. don't actually root (or correct my root). And the system shows Superuser.apk installed but there is no way to uninstall the app - it gives no ability to do so.

Any thoughts on how to get out of this ouroboros? A way to get this old Susperuser.apk and SU off my tablet so I can do a fresh root.
