    cannot delete file


    i have a file in a folder....
    when i want to delete the file an error appear..
    the error is:
    "cannot delete filename.avi:It is used by another person or program.Close any programs that might be using the file and try again"
    i'm using win XP with latest service pack..

    the weird is there is no any application opened and i dont know what programs that i have to close like the error said...
    and then i thought maybe that was a windows error...
    i decided to format the windows again although i know i really hate to do that due to i have to reinstall all my applications all over again...
    and then i really mad because after i reinstall the windows,i still cannot delete the file and the annoying error still appear....

    can u help me??
    is this a virus or what????

    I just downloaded it a few minutes ago.....

    I get the 404 now too. I will check into it further.

    Have you tried deleting the file in safe mode?
