Can't delete Yahoo game application file

  chesterfield 11:20 22 Aug 2004

I was obviously very bored one day and decided to download one of the game demos from the Yahoo site. I clicked to download a demo of a game called 'Red Ace', (click here) and was surprised to find that only a small file of about 25kb downloaded to my desktop. This obviously wasn't the game file but what is now more annoying is that I cant delete this dam thing. Evertime I try, I get the old pop up message 'in use by anothe programme, try closing programs which may be using this', etc etc.

Any body any idea whats happening here?

Help much appreciated.

Iv found when this happens that restarting the pc and not open anything once restarted,theen the 1st thing you do is try deleting the file.

Yeah, Ive noticed that before but unfortunatley it doesnt work in this case.

Thanks for the suggestion though.
