cant deletes many files

  40apple40 10:59 12 Jun 2006

i have a problem with deleteing,renaming & moveing many files -mainly mp3s.

i get a message saying that it cant be done as a program could still be using it. i've made sure all progs are shut down but still have the same problem.

i've tried an unlocker program that allows me to do these tasks but that's more of a work around rather than a solution as it takes a lot of effort when moving many different files.

any one else had this problem?
what program settings could cause this?

any ideas on solving this would be much appretiated, thanks.

Have you tried starting in Safe Mode and deleting there?

You could also look at the `Properties` and see if they are protected.

create another account on your PC with admin rights
log on, you should be able to move the files as they are not being used..
