Is this normal? Every time I try to delete the debug log I keep getting that the file cannot be deleted that it is being used by Internet Explorer.
I am not connected to the Internet while trying to delete the file. Internet Explorer is not in use while trying to delete the file.
I have tried to delete the file in safe mode to no avail. Please see "debug.jpg"
Please see attachments:

In your second attachment, it says the file is open in Windows Explorer, (not Internet Explorer).

I do not mean to sound like a wise guy; but what's the difference? I am not a computer geek. And is it normal; or something I need to be concerned with.

Windows Explorer is the Windows file manager. (Browse, move, copy, delete files and folders).

Internet Explorer is used for browsing web pages on the internet.

Thank you for the explanation between the two; but at this point what I'm more concerned with is; Is it normal not to be able to delete the debug log; when the Windows file manager is not in use.

Thank you. It's just will all I have been through the passed two months; I did not need something else to go wrong.
