    Joe,
    Hello again. Thank you for the link, one of the "tools" is just what i need! "MoveFile tool" to delete things that are "in use" Being "command prompt challenged" could you please give an example of how to execute the delete? ie: using "Freds folder" as an example.Regards

    The MoveFiles tool is one of the <img src=/S/free.gif border=0 alt=free width=30 height=15> Sysinternals Suite from Microsoft. You may download from PendMoves and MoveFile if you do not want the complete suite of tools. Or see the Sysinternals Live section at Windows Sysinternals: Documentation, downloads and additional resources for instructions on accessing the tool via the internet. Then just open a elevated command window. See the PendMoves link above for the correct syntax to enter or see example 2 in Use MoveFile and PendMoves to Move a File That is Always in Use (that is exactly what you need to type in except that you need to replace FILE2.TXT with the filename you wish to delete.
