Default Re: Can't Delete A File - Pain in the Ass

I actually ran into this exact same problem a day ago. open on your task manager and shut down explorer.exe. then while still in the task manager at the top click on file and then new task. type cmd and hit enter. in the command prompt navigate to the directory where you stubborn file is and then do a del filename command on the file and it should delete it. then in the task manager hit new task again and restart explorer.exe. Hope that works for ya, it worked perfectly for me the other night.
