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

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!

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

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there!
