I have a picture which I want to delete but try as I might it will not delete. I have tried right-clicking but I do not get the full menu when I do this. I have tried using the side window to delete or move but nothing happens. The title of the picture is a very long one - I cannot even edt this to see if this makes a difference.
Any help greatfully received
Thanks

Try Unlocker click here

Thanks for that - I have just tried it but no joy - when I right click on the file Unlocker does not show in the menu. Thank you anyway.

I have just tried MoveonBoot but when I try to open the file I am told that it has an invalid file name and so will not open it in the programme. Can I change the name so that it is valid?

Have you downloaded the Unlocker program?

I downloaded the programme - it was showing on my task bar (a little Wand?)but did not show when I right clicked on the file I wanted to delete.

Is the picture in your My Pictures Folder? if so, simply highlight it and then press Delete on the keyboard.

Have you tried deleting it in safe mode?

Thanks guys for your help - I emptied the folder of all files (to a new file) but for the one I wanted to delete, moved that folder to My Documents and then clicked delete on the side window, It went to the Recycle bin and then I emptied it from there.
Success!!
Thanks Again
Phil
