Hi

I have one folder on my hard drive where I cannot move or delete files.
I get a message saying the file is in use by another program.

Is there some way of telling which program is using the file.
I have up to date NAV, Spybot, Adaware SE and MS Antispyware Beta,
and scans of these find nothing.

thanks

Daniel

Use the excellent program by Cedrick Collomb called Unlocker. Right click
the file or folder and select Unlocker. If the file or folder is locked then
a window will appear with a list of processes
locking the file or folder. Select the locks and click Unlock and you are
done.
