Chapter 5. Windows Explorer Annoyances > WHEN YOU CAN'T DELETE A FILE

WHEN YOU CAN'T DELETE A FILE

The Annoyance:

Windows Explorer won't let me delete certain files. I get an oh-so-unhelpful message about the file being "used by another person or program" (see Figure 5-3). There's no one else around, and no other programs are open. Any brilliant ideas?

Figure 5-3. Do you get this message when you try to delete an .avi file? Me too.
