I run xp pro but there is one file that xp wont let me delete. Everytime i try to delete it, I get this message. "Cannot delete ......:it is being used by another person or program."

There is nothing open in the task manager and nobody connected to my computer.

Any Ideas?

Many Thanks

This problem is sometimes resolved by entering msconfig-startup.

Do this by going to start-run and type msconfig. Then pick the start up tab. You can only un tick every thing with X\P. If you untick every item and reboot, you can then usually delete the program or file.

If this does or doesn't do the trick, you can go back and retick every thing.

Press the F8 key when starting and the select SAFE MODE.

Delete from there.
