hi guy

Sometimes files. AVI are impossible to delete or rename. XP displays a message like:

"This resource is already used by another person or another program. "


This is due to a malfunction of the extension of the interface properties of extraction media (shmedia.dll).


To resolve this problem, simply delete the registry key: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE \ SOFTWARE \ Classes \ CLSID \{87D62D94-71B3-4b9a-9489-5FE6850DC73E}\InProcServer32

U tried to play .avi and u get msg cant delete file.
OK, file is linked to some process like the player you tried to play(or u did something else that links to that file ) it and it wont delete .

Use http://www.filehippo.com/download_unlocker/ u will see an icon in notification area(next to your clock) so u know it is running and than try to delete.U get again same windows msg,click OK unlocker will pop up and u select delete file.(it will kill the process that is holding that delete.) Done.
