It says its a self extracting cabinet, I want to move it from my desktop but it won't let me and says it being used. Can someone tell me what it is and if I can delete it.

It's the patch for the Blaster Virus, junipaire, you must have downloaded it.

click here This site is telling people it's a fix for the blaster worm virus. If so, then U should be able to delete it.

everytime I try and delete it though it comes up with windows cannot delete WindowsXP-KB823980-x86-ENU it is being used by another person or program, close any programs that might be using the file.

And I don't have any open that might be using it, so I don't get how to delete it.

Have you run it and no rebooted yet?

Try rebooting that should free it.
