hi, how can i delete file from my PC if everytime i try i get message that this program can not be deleted cos its being used by other program or person?? i tried to delete it in safe mode as well but no avail. any suggestion?

PS: this file ment to be Driver Cleaner Pro. but it didnt work when i wanted to execute it. so i had to download this program from another website. i dont thing that the file i have downloaded is virus or spyware.

I'm not sure if you want to delete a file or a program, Jaro. Eitherway boot to Safe Mode and delete from there, Control Panel > Add/Remove Programs if it's a program, or, from the folder it's in, if it's a file.

If those options don't work and you're using Windows XP or ME, try doing a System Restore to a date before you originally installed the program.

i havent actually install that program. and i have tried safe mode it didnt work. i was wandering wheather i could avoid system restore.

If you haven't installed the program, Jaro, what exactly are you trying to delete/uninstall?

if its a file then you could try to rename it then delete
