I only have two other suggestions, both freeware, but handy little apps to have regardless of whether they help on this occasion.

The first one is called [url=***********.dr-hoiby.com/WhoLockMe/index.php][b]WhoLockMe[/b].

It's only beta, and it doesn't work for Windows 9x or ME, but fine for others.

This will allow you to right-click the file in question, and kill the process so you can delete, open or whatever.

If the file isn't "in use", it will appear as if it's not working and that nothing has happened. It only works if the file is registered as "in use".

The second is called [url=***********.sysinternals.com/ntw2k/freeware/procexp.shtml][b]Process Explorer[/b].

These basic things are really all I can suggest without having the PC in front of me.

Good luck.
