Can´t delete that F****ng file!



I have a file that I can´t delete!

Every time I try to do it, I get a error msg saying that it can´t be deleted because someone else or/and a program is using it.

There is no other user and there is no other program using that file!

And that´s not all, when I have tryed the above the CPU goes to a 100% (process: explorer) and stays there until I log out/restarts.

Anyone had a similar/same problem?


You're getting that message because a program is using the file. Most likely, there's a service or program set to run on start-up, and that is what's using the file. Your easiest way to delete the file is to start up in safe-mode and delete it then. If that doesn't work, more drastic measures can be taken later. But try that for now.


Thanks a lot! It did the trick, it went a way easy in safe mode.

You are my hero for now! :D

Hey EP! All good with me, applying for Microsoft MVP right now, should have done this a while ago.

Notifications don't work, I only found your response by coming back to hunt up some threads, if you want, give me your email address so we can keep in touch easier!

EP, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS
