    When I delete files in Windows XP Home, Windows automatically backs up or copies the same files back into the same program. When I remove those files, the same thing happens again. How can I prevent this problem?

    You are going to have to be a lot more specific than that.
    What files, from what programs?
    Copies them back after reboot?

    Recopies the files immediately upon either using Move or Copy Commad. It doesn't make any difference what files I am woring with.

    You are not making sense :confused:

    The computer will not do those commands unless you tell it to.

    Please explain what are you doing in detail

    Neither "Move" nor "Copy" has anything to do with Delete? I'm lost
