deleting files

  cowait 08:42 06 Dec 2006

I have a couple of files that I want to delete but every time I try I am told that they are being used and I need to shut down whichever program is using them. I cant even open the files to see what they are. I suspect they are gathering information.
How do I discover which programs are using the files?

Start in safe mode (press F8 at startup and get the menu) and you should be able to delete them from there.
