I have recently downloaded some trial game from the Internet and now can't delete it. The files name is DontGetAngry2Setup-dm
It says it is being used by another person or program, close any programs that might be using the file and try again.
Thank you. :whistling:

Hit [CTRL] + [ALT] + [DEL] and end explorer.exe.
In Task Manager goto File >> Name Task(Run...) type in cmd.exe
In the Command Prompt, type DEL [pathname] where [pathname] is the path and filename of the file you wish to delete.

Hey there rajicuk, you can use lorothrigs solution, but if it doesnt work.

Startup in "Safemode" to delete the file. That should work. Cool :whistling:
