I have these 2 folders on my desktop with no files in them.. I cannot delete them because they're being used with another Process. I don't know what process this is, and, when i restart i still can't delete them.

Is there anyway i can delete these without checking if its being used currently?

Ive had the same problem. WipeInfo from Norton's Utilites usually did the job for me, sometimes even a restart. Those things are aggravating though.

u might be able to do it if u boot into safe mode, and what i would usually do is check the proccess list and see if they are in use.
