Delete File

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
Hey guys, every time I try to delete this video file I have it says it is being used in Windows Explorer and I'm unable to do it. I restarted and same thing happens again, anyone know how I can delete it? It's just a regular mkv video file.

Killbox. I'd recommend it. If not, Restart and try and delete.

Install it, and right click on the file you're trying to delete.
Hit unlock and delete

Works for me everytime.

I used KillBox and it worked, thanks! This is the first time I ran into a problem like this but it probably won't be the last, I'll also note down all the things everyone else here mentioned as well just in case for future use. Thanks everyone!
