My daughter downloaded a file on Kazaa now if I try to move it or delete it I get an error message saying it is being used by another person or program, Norton has not detected a virus. How can I get rid of this ?
OK, sorry for the quick reply, here it is in more detail.
go to START -> RUN and type cmd (assuming you are running nt, 2000 or xp)
in the dos prompt, navigate to the folder where the file is located. type:
cd <folder> to get into a folder. if the folder name is longer than 8 characters, you might need to only type the first 6 letters followed by ~1
will get you to a lower level folder.
the delete command is as follows:
just type help within the dos window for a list of all the commands.
Elroy, sorry for all the trouble, but your not dealing with a rocket scientist here. I haven't a clue about DOS. Is it possible I could get you to tell me exactly what to type/ the name of the directory is C:\My , or would it be C:/My
Black screens frighten the begeezus out of me.
my problem begins with the "navigate to the folder where the file is located" part , and goes downhill from there
Oh joy, I was able to get rid of it. Want to know how? Even though I had tried to change the filename myself earlier it wouldnt. So I went into file properties and changed the file name there (to bad file) I was then able to delete it. See, us old folks may be dumb, but were sneaky
Sorry for all the trouble Ellroy, but as a wise man once said:
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
