Modifying a file in XP Pro

I'm having problems modifying a file such as deleting, renaming, etc etc.. in XP. Happens only to avi files for some reason. Says another user or program might be using the file, this is total BS! I didn't even open the avi file since I installed XP. I tried going to safe mode with no luck. XP had more problems than 98SE, I think I'm going to install 98. Anyone know what the problem is? XP got way too many problems.

the avi files are probly divx files...

keep on pressing f8 on startup...just before windows xp starts

Why does it happens with divx files? Is Xp a Palladium beta? :-(

You could use Total Commander to avoid the reload in safe mode. It's a very good tool for many tasks!

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???
