Deleting a locked for editing Word document?

  albu 16:47 07 Apr 05

Using Word 2000 and XP home.

I received an application form via e-mail but when I try to delete it,it comes up " Cannot delete file. It is being used by another person or program." Prior to this message it came up " locked for editing by another user."

This was saved to my desktop and now it cannot be deleted? Is there anyway to remove this?

Can anyone help?

Many thanks

Whilst working on the application it crashed a few times. After repairing word and rebooting pc the problem file deleted with no problems.
