I have a video clip on my hard drive that I would very much like to delete. However, when I try, I get that "this file is in use" message. I look through task manager for any process it could be running, but find nothing. I can't quarantine it, rename it or move it because it's running some process. Is there a program I can use to find out what process it's running, or something? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

What OS?

Have you tried doing deleting it in safe mode?

Why don't you post a Hijack This log for the experts to take a look at.

Please do this. Click here:

http://www.majorgeeks.com/downloadg...a8baee6434cfc13
to download Hijack This. Save it to it’s own folder (not temporary files or desktop). Click on the Hijackthis.exe.

Close all open windows and open HIJACK THIS. Click “Scan”. When the scan is finished (it only takes a second), the scan button will change to “Save Log”. Click on “Save Log” and save it to NotePad. Copy the entire log and paste it here.

DO NOT FIX ANYTHING YET, most items that appear in the log are harmless or even needed. Wait for someone to analyze the scan and advise.
