    Hi Guys,

    I'm really puzzled here so hope someone can help me. I have a load of empty folders that i want to delete, but I keep getting messages saying that I can't delete them as they are being used by another program.

    I have no programs open, I have gone through Windows Task Manager item by item and cannot find anything that would be using these empty folders and am at a loss as to how to delete them!

    Any help would be appreciated!
    Thanks in advance
