    when downloaded avi or mpeg files from kazaa and want to delete it, it says
    that the file is in use by another program and can not be deleted. this
    happens in windows when kazaa is shut down, internet connection is off. so I
    booted in safe mode and then delete it, same message. so I booted in safe
    mode with command prompt (winxp), but then it says the file cannot be found,
    even though if you run 'dir' it is in the file list. does anyone has an idea
    how to delete these files?
