I was downloading some skate clips, and on one of them, when i drag to recycle bin, it says either 1.) that the file isnt there anymore, check the filename..but it is? 2.) it wont say anything, just dosent go in. It also dosent have the normal option when u right click. All the options i have are : Play,Open,Que-it-up,add to playlist,copy to cd,open-with, and send to . I dont get why it wont delete. Its not in use either.

What i do when files wont delete is create a new account on XP and move the file to the new account's desktop. then i delete the new account and choose to not save his files and the file is deleted

Write the file path down.
Boot to DOS and use the command del /f to force the file to be deleted.

when you right click on the file does it allow you to go to properties? if so. check its attributes and post back what they are. Also if you can get to properties it shows the location of the file (ie c:\program files\ect). Post back what it says in location.
