    The only solution I found for this, (and this seems to happen only with media files that WMP use) was to delete the contents of the contents of the folder first and then delete the folder. Has worked everytime for me.

    The File is read only and every time I change it, it changes right back. The file is empty and I still cant delete it. The only thing I didnt do is try to delete it in dos becasue I have no idea how to do it..
