    Errr...
    Okay, ignoring that...
    You could try to back-up everything on your HDD except that vid and reformat your HDD [​IMG]

    I don't recommend that...

    What I do recommend is to check if you're an admin, and/or if the file is somehow protected or whatever....
    I'm sure there was a certain map privileges options menu...
    (at least in windows XP, but I don't think you're using that, most use 7 now... My computer is too outdated for 7)

    Deze computer > extra > Map opties (yes, it's Dutch [​IMG], but he's Dutch too, so who cares? [​IMG])
    Something there that can help you?

    Right click your... 'special file' ([​IMG]) properties, anything there?

    Try Unlocker, it's absolutely amazing.

    Even if it doesn't detect a locked file, it gives you the option to delete the folder.

    Could be something as simple as booting into safe mode and deleting it from there, or using the command prompt. I've had several files that unlocker wouldn't get rid of.

    i always use my own replacer: http://fav.me/d2w7dnc
    first drag the porn on window
    then drag a text file or something else over the window
    then type Y
    then press enter
    then close window
    then remove the text file or other file you used

    I think it will work =P

    I gonna make a app named File Killer
    and link to this thread as a situations why to use my app XD

    right click file>properties>security>edit>add>advanced>find now>select "Everyone">set full control>ok and apply
    then you have full permission

    if it still dosent work because the file is still running, unplug your pc without turning it off and select "safe mode with cmd" type "cd" to change directory (cd C:\Users\blah\Desktop) then use del to delete (del file.jpeg)

    Don't do the crime if you can't do the time...

    If you are only 15, you should chill on the porn anyway.
