I get the message 'folder is being used by another program' alot when trying to delete a file, even when the file hasnt been accessed for many days, and i have started. often the message can come up when folders are often completely empty. Is this just a bug in xp, and is there any way around it other than restarting and hoping that it will delete the next time around?
