Unhappy Cannot Delete a file

I have had issues with deleting certain files after I decided I didn't like the program etc.

It usually gives me an error along the lines of Cannot access file *** it is being used by another program.

Any info on this?

Whoa.......I'm suprised that no asked you what OS you are using??

What OS and what Program? Most likely it is under HKLM and HKCU but I'm SURE that we want to be sure about what we are doing with "our" registry right?
And we'll get it sorted out for ya.
