    Can't delete a file in Windows XP

    After even a restart i can't seem to delete a file.

    When i press delete, the computer (after a while) says the file is in use somewhere and can't delete the file. (The file is a media player file)

    Should i try to go into safe mode and try to delete it there or can i fiddle around the registry to see to what program don't seem to leave this program alone!

    Any help will be much appreciated!

    Thanks

    I'm using Windows 7 - you got a problem with that?
