    Hello to whom it may concern, thankyou for firstly taking a look at my issue.

    I recently downloaded a large .UIF file, 'Dragon Naturally Speaking', to help with dictating for word documents and etc.

    I installed it after mounting it, with Daemon tools / MagicISO.

    Then there wasn't a need for the .UIF file anymore.

    After 3 days, I found Dragon Naturally Speaking, wasn't so useful, uninstalling it.

    I've now tried to delete the .UIF file, from it's folder, from my D: HDD, seperate from my usual C: HDD (where windows is installed). The D: HDD is where I keep my music, and video files, a memory bank for my media.

    I've been trying to delete this file for several days now, exploring forums for ideas and solutions.

    My issue is with the folder itself. It constantly says 'In use, open in another file or folder / program is using it'. I've tried programs such as EMCO MoveOnBoot, Unlocker etc etc. But none of them are working. I've tried doing it safemode. I was going to consider System Restore, but System restore doesn't delete files, or so it didn't in XP (I am using Vista x32).

    Is there any idea what could be done to help?

    I've tried a full scan with Kaspersky Internet Security 2009 - Nothing detected. I'm pretty stumped. Also annoyed, it's a large 2GB file, that I wouldn't really like on my D: HDD much longer.

    I will attach a HJT log, if that will help.
