Error deleting file or folder????

  catman2000 12:25 21 Apr 2003

Hi all,

I am trying to delete an incomplete file download, but it comes up with the following message.....

"Cannot delete_Incomplete_filename! : it is being used by another person or program.
Close any programs that might be using the file and try again."

I have closed all programs i think can be using it but still it wont let me get rid. Any ideas.......

Thanks in advance...

Go into Safe Mode and see if it can be deleted from there, catman2000.
