There's this file on my desktop called Spacerangers2-dm.exe, I cant delete it, when i try it tells me "the action could not be completed because the file is open in another program"

The file is left over from the spacerangers 2 demo, I saw someone with a similar problem on this forum, and tried the advise that worked for him, but I still have this file on my desktop, and its annoying me.

What i tried was to get unlocker, but it seems to be linked to a number of explorer.exe [insert appropriate term]. Unsurprisingly what happened when i tried shutting down these processes is that explorer stopped working. And i still couldnt delete the file.

Any help would be greatly appreciated. Also, please forgive the lack of techspeak, I am technologically challenged.

Now it is time to use EMCO Move-on-Boot to get rid of this file.
