You dont mention what OS you are running .What is the file type for the problem files ? What handle does Unlocker report/unlock ? Do you have access to another computer ?

My bad . I see you are running XP

Download Puppy Linux from my list of links below. Download "puppy 2.16.1 seamonkey fulldrivers.ISO". Burn the ISO file to create a bootable CD. For this purpose you can download BurnCDCC from the links below. It's a very simple tool, used exclusively to burn ISO files.

Insert the disk into the CD/DVD drive and boot the computer. Use the default setting except for choosing screen resolution of 600x800 when given the option to do so. After the program is loaded click the icon that looks like flash disk. This will open the file system and will enable browsing your folders. Find the one that you want to delete from and use puppy to delete it.

If the computer doesn't boot, please set boot order in the BIOS so that the CD drive is first priority boot device. don't get into any of the exotic

What burning program are you using?

Is your CD burner OK?

Try to burn on another computer.

Hello aven_steph,

We're sorry for the delay :)

You didn't mention what burning program you used.
A normal writable disk should be fine.

Are you using the right option when burning the CD-Rom?

Regards,
Olrik
