Got this problem with Windows XP, when I had windows 98 I had the same problem concerning Photoshop and Illustrator files.

When I want to move or delete such files it's almost a guarrantee that I will get this message.
____________________________________________________

X Cannot move FILE: It is being used by another program.

Close any programs that might be using the file and try again.

OK
____________________________________________________

Problem is, the only program running is windows since I opened my computer. I wish there was something I can do other than restart my computer every time I ge this message.

How can I fix this problem?

While I'm here what is better finding a way to make Photoshop regognize JPEG file extensions or finding a way to make IE save images as JPG's and not JPEG and how?

Thanks again,
Muezan

Nothing! Other than the folder where I'm trying to delete said files.

Hiya

Are they system files that you're trying to move or delete?

If they are exe's, for example, try this.

Rightclick on the one you want to move, and drag it to where you want it. Let go, and choose Move Here.

As for the deleting of files, have you tried in SafeMode?

Regards
