I was wondering if anyone could tell me how to delete protected files or files in use(even tho they aint) from my hard drive, like msn gaming zone?
I am using windows xp.

If a file is write-protected, then usually you can change the permissions (or file attributes) so that it is not. To do this, right-click on the file, select Properties, and un tick the box that says Read Only.
However, you cannot delete files that Windows thinks are in use. The first idea is to empty the Temporary Internet Files folder, restart your PC and see if you can delete it now. The second idea is to restart your PC in DOS mode and delete it there
