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.

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

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