Merry xmas to all, especially those patient members who help me from time to time.

I have started getting an error message telling me I cannot delete file/folder.

Its not a major problem as someone advised me to install "Move on Boot" prog which does what it says when rebooting, the file goes but its a nuisance and I want to know how to stop it happening. And MAYBE to do with it, after opening/closing a file in Word, a copy has been made.

This just happens beacuse windows or a program is still using the file / folder. This just helps programs not to crash/ loose data etc

Say if u have a word doc open you will be unable to delete it because it is being used. You will the be able to delete after you close word becuse the file is no longer in use

I know that much i was just providing a simple example on what windows does to prevent files that are in use from being deleted, very much the same thing
Windows maybe using the file for a number of reason
