I am writing a C++ program. I am using the function "system("PAUSE"); ". I was wondering how I could make it do the same thing just not the the
words " Press any key to continue....".

I don't know if that's possible, but try this:
Set the program into a loop, until whatever condition is met. (ie while x do y, if z do whatever.)
This way, you will have full control over both the message (if any) and the action to resume the program.

why use the system("PAUSE"); command, if the only thing you want is wait for a keystroke, then do it like this:
the getch() function works only on windows (with the standard libraries at least) and otherwise you could use the getchar() function.
this way the system is waiting for a keystroke before the program continues...

you also need the conio.h header file included in order to use getch()

yes, thats right (if your programming for linux). otherwise you could use the getchar() function for it...
