    Cannot Delete AxCrypt Files

    I used AxCrypt to encrypt a file. Then I tried to delete the file but I got an error message saying the program was being used by another application. How do I get rid of the error message and how do I delete the file? Thank you in advance for your reply.

    Mark Solved: I did ctrl alt del and selected the AxCrypt processes and stopped or deleted the processes. Then I deleted the file. Problem solved.

    The problem isn't really solved, but temporarily bypassed! This isn't what should be happening...
    In fact one of the Axcrypt FAQs is headed "Anyone can still delete my encrypted files, why is that?"

    Are you on the latest version (1.7.2687.0)? (Not that that should make a difference.)
