Have two files saved from adobe shop elements which I cannot delete I get on the screen:
"cannot delete:It is being used by another program.Close any programs that might be using the file and try again."
I have no programs running?
Have windows XP.
Any answer please ?

Reboot and try again.

Failing the above things not working a good idea is to try to delete in safe mode press f8 when booting select safe mode log on as administrator and then try to delete the file.

Hope this helps Chris :-)

I tried reboot first and that did the trick and was then able to delete files.(from iambeavis)
