Hey everyone!

So I have a few very small files that I want to delete but when I try, it says "used by Windows Explorer."

But I know I run Command Prompt, but when I type in the file name, it says, it cannot be found.

The harder problem is that I don't think Command Prompt recognizes the's dddrkknghtrsssss72bd.dago (1) - Copy

and dddrkknghtrsssss72bd.dago (1)

Which is why I cannot delete them through Command Prompt...I deleted others no problem as they have "regular" names...

PLEASE HELP! This is killing me as I also have OCD!!!!!

Thanks in advance!!

maybe its already deleted and windows explorer just thinks its still there. Happened to me a few times before. Try restarting your computer and then see whats up.
