I have 64 bit windows 7. I deleted dungeon siege 2 using the control panel, remove program. It was removed except for one file in Program files x86/microsoftgames/dungeonSiege2. I tried manually deleting it but get this "the action can't be completed because the folder or file in it is open in another program. Close folder or file or retry" There is nothing open. I clicked properties of the file and security and clicked administrator and get the same message. Never had this problem removing remnants of programs in xp. Help!!

This program works http://download.cnet.com/Unlocker/3000-2248_4-10493998...., I used it myself to remove some locked old files from my old Windows drive that was relegated to a storage drive.

The program comes with some permission-ware, make sure to not install it.

You can also try the program found here
