Hi Jimfdowning,

It seems you have tried a lot, but what exactly is the error message you get?

File is in use or file doesnt exist, etc.

The error message usually gives a lot of information about what could be the problem.
Their are stronger tools to use then say Killbox, but before going to such drastic matters it would be better to see what the problem really is :D

Hope to help,

Mythio

Hi Jimfdowning,

Glad that did the trick! :D

Just a note of caution:

Some of those, more aggressive, file remover tools can also do a lot of damage, so always be careful when using them.
