Restart again and delete the folder the file is in. Cut everything inside the folder you want to keep first. This has always worked when I have a pesky file like that. Dunno why it happens though. Me no techie ~(o_O~)

Where are the files located? What programs are you running in the background? In order to do that, download HijackThis!. Post the log here.

I used to have that problem back when I used Windows.

It's basically an bug in windows XP. The way I fixed it was by modifying a registry key. I could look it up if you want.

Here are some steps

Remove the following regkey (you will need to tree through it instead of searching for it)

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESOFTWAREClassesCLSID{87D62D94-71B3-4b9a-9489-5FE6850DC73E}InProcServer32

OR
Rename shmedia.dll in your \windows\system32
AND
remove it from the \windows\system32\cache

The problem has to do with XP's insistance to catalog the AVI info (e.g. duration, size, etc). The problem appears with more Divx based AVI where files may be corrupted or incomplete. (e.g. Bittorrent partial downloads).

Note: the drawback is that this will affect all your media files from being cataloged. Another workaround is to change your view to list only. This will get around the bug most of the time.

Unhappy Can't delete a file

I have a video file that I cannot delete no matter what I do. I get the message "Cannot delete ... It is being used by another person or program. Close any programs that might be using the file and try again." I know that the file isn't in use because I can't play it. I get a "The format is not supported," message.

How do I delete this file? (I am using Windows XP.)

Please help.

You'll need to use the PendMoves program.

You can find a post explaining how to use it here.

If you still cant get the hang of it, I can make pictures.

Spybot is an altertive program. It has a file shreding feature. It comes quite in handy.

hey I try it and it worked! sorry to bring this old topic back to life but I was getting desperate about this file I couldnt delete, and the weird thing is that it was a very small file (it wasnt even above 50K O_o) It happened when I was dling a pdf and accidentally I save it as a .exe... wierd, anyone knows any explanation to this? is it, again, because of the windows XP bug, even with such small file and with this extentions?

Error when deleting files!


I get that message when I go to delete files. I have tried closing all processes (except critical ones) and tried restarting 3 times. Is there some problem? I can't move files either. Please help thank you.

Did you even try restarting your PC? And after the PC is rebooted, delete the file before you open any applications. Worst case scenario, I would even boot the PC into the safe mode and delete the file...

"and tried restarting 3 times" is what I said, so yes, I did try restarting. I did try deleting before opening anything as well, not working ;_:. I shall try the Safe Mode.

LOL, I was just going to link to the thread detailing how to delete troublemaking files but when I reloaded the "Tech Support" page, I'd realized that NSW already took care of it Well, maybe next time I will win the race
