    I downloaded a file called dcprosetup_15 (driver guide) and it came with a zip extension. when I tried to upzip, it said there were no files to unzip. I thought it might need to be renamed to .exe so I did and reran...nothing seemed to happen but now I can't delete this file, it says it's in use by another person or program. I can't find it in the task manager

    hmm, I decided to try deleting from the dos prompt and it worked??!!??
    Still, any ideas as to why this wouldn't delete normally?
