I am trying to delete an .iso file from my computer but it is not letting me! When I try to, I get a message that says that the file is open in System. How can I figure out what is using this file because I don't see any processes open that could be using it. Also, everytime I start my computer, the iso always seems to be booted in my G:\ drive which is a virtual drive I believe. I don't understand how it automatically gets mounted everytime. I made sure I ejected the iso from 'Safely Remove Hardware' but I still cannot delete the .iso from my computer.

Someone please help!!
Thank you

Hey. :)

Here is what you do:

1. Right-click the .iso
2. Select Unlocker
3. Click Yes if asked to run the program
4. When the window opens choose Delete and then press Ok

Let me know if that works.

Try using FileASSASSIN

http://www.malwareby...s/fileassassin/

Usage

Start FileASSASSIN and select a file by dragging it onto the text area or select it using the (...) button.
Select a removal method from the list.
Click Execute and the removal process will commence.
