computer nerds unite!

I'm trying to delete a file or two... and they won't allow me to delete them. The one says it can't be deleted because it's in use, but it is NOT in use. The other one just won't let me delete it... it's a 0 Kb file. How can I force their deletion?

Re: computer nerds unite!

reboot and try deleting again. Whatever was downloading might not be closed and still have hold of the file that you were downloading.

Re: computer nerds unite!

yeah, even though it kept making this program boot up non-stop. I ended up uninstalling the program it had boot up. I found out it was making a program boot up, and then that program was using it and therefore I couldn't delete it. But yeah, I got it.
