I recented downloaded a few video clips using Azureus, and I cant seem to delete it! It always say, there might be another program using it etc. I have deleted the torrent file etc off the client (i think)
Am I still seeding it? But I dont see it operating on the Azureus cilent.

What can I do to remove the file??

It sounds like you have Azureus set to load at startup. If Azureus isn't using them they may be accessing the web throught media player. Check and see if there is any web traffic. You can use Task Manager to shut down any applications that might be using them. If worse comes to worst you can go into MSDOS mode and delete them, easy if you have win98, not so easy with XP. Media files, especially .wmv and .asx files can contain script to run commands. In a case like this you just have to try different things till you find what works. Some trojans use media files as an entry into your computer, and they continue using them so they won't be deleted.
