Deleting Folder

  iconoclast 10:44 21 Jan 2007

I have an empty folder on my desktop and want to get rid of it. When I try to delete, I get an error message saying that the folder is in use by another user or another program. I have closed down all other programs and the error message still appears. I'm running XP.

the link worked ok for me, maybe you should try delete it in safe mode ie keep pressing F8 during boot up?

If the link does not work for you there maybe something wrong with your browser settings,
the prog is called UNLOCKER type that into google and see if you can get it that way.
you may need to sign in on another adminisrator account thats not yours (if you haven't got one create one) you should be able to delete the folder that way..
