File won't delete.... why?

  neil_raj 19:36 15 May 2006

Got an "AVI" file 11GB in size (transfered VHS video to Hard drive) the whole thing was done in Nero Show Time. It won't play, it won't delete.... Message says "file in use by another program, close then try again etc", what does that mean?

Anyway...... I could do with my 11GB back, please tell me how I can delete this file.

Me heads in bits!!!!!!!!!!!!

Thanks......... Neil.

Have you tried rebooting into safe mode and then deleting it ?

You may like to try deleting from your search box

Start > Search > All files and folders > Advanced options > Tick search for hidden files and folders

Type the name of the file you wish to delete and delete anything related to the file it finds.

If you are unsure about this,make a restore point first.

It will probably delete normally when you next turn your PC on
