File in Use

  baldyx 11:47 04 Apr 2009

I cannot delete a file because the message keeps getting is that the file is used by a program. But I cannot see any program using it.

How can i find out who is using this file?

if it is being used by windows you cannot delete it normally. Try starting in safe mode - keep hitting the F8 key before windows starts.
