Unhappy I need help (XP)..

I'll get right to the point..

I downloaded a file, moved it, and tried to open it. I couldn't. This file is always "in use". It only sits there, I can't change it, I can't view it and most importantly, I can't delete it. Any suggestions on how to delete this file?

Thanks in advance for all your help.

Arrow More clear..

I've rebooted. Does nothing. Still in use. I've closed just about all my applications (save necessary ones) and it's still "in use." I don't know what to do!

Arrow No.

It's a 700mb movie file.

It's mostly a nuisance, but on a 20gb drive you need all the space you can get.

E, I had a tech support call JUST LIKE THIS. It's only happening on XP.

A buncha my bud's movie files are now unplayable, he gets the exact same error your getting and such. Reboots don't work. (He's Don Juan from the room331studs).

I have no idea what's up, it baffles me.

Just another reason why I won't go with XP.
