Can't Delete Empty Folder

  Sethhaniel 13:21 27 Apr 2004

Copied downloaded Webpages from MemoryStick to My Documents to look through - closed them down and went to remove the files I didn't want - got error message saying couldn't delete as they were being used by another application - managed to empty files from folder but cannot delete folder -not write protected or hidden -
System XP

Reboot your machine and try to delete again.

but will probably solve issue - but why can't I clean up as I go ??!!!

and if €dstowe's suggestion doesn't work, try booting up into safe mode

But why not before - I did CTR ALT DEL and nothing running - I am only user and checked the Three occasions of MY Documents that window XP deems we need in explorer - checked hidden icons in task bar etc, etc, And XP still informs me that the folder (though Empty) is being used by another user/program
