i downloaded the evil genius demo (really fun) and the first attempt was a bad file. i tried to delete it but windows won't let me. it says it is being used by another program when it's not. how can i find out what is using it and how can i delete it?



thanks
 
Open Notepad, All Files, Go To The File you wana get Rid Of, Select it, Delete it

Done :)

Always Works, No need to Install programs when theres really no need lol
 
There is a tool that deletes undeletable files when you reboot.
Sadly I can't remember it's name :(
 
Have you even tried a reboot and delete after your machine has come up?
Safe-Mode may help also
 
1-open the task manager
2-open cmd (go to run and type "cmd")
with task manager close "explorer.exe"
in the cmd window type
del [name of your file]

you need to browse the location of your file for exaple if it's in your C: drive type
cd C and hit enter

cd command is used to brosw locations on the same drive

Also Hi EP and people. I found this place again while looking through a oooollllllldddd backup. I have filled over 10TB and was looking at my collection of antiques. Any bids on the 500Mhz Win 95 fix?
Any of the SP crew still out there?

Impressed you have kept this alive this long EP! So many sites have come and gone. :(

Just did some crude math and I apparently joined almost 18yrs ago, how is that possible???
