Deleting a file or folder in Windows but error since file or folder is open

Trying to delete a file or folder and unable to delete? Window error suggests that file or folder is open by any program? All permissions on file and ACLs look good and you technically have full access? So what is using the file or folder and why? Usually you could have a file opened by a program and closed but program may retain link to the fail until you close the program so try closing all open programs. Again, pretty much every time you reboot your computer it works but in a busy life rebooting computer should not be today's requirement and why you can literally do anything and everything without a single reboot on Linux/Unix operating systems. So you need to really find what program has the file open in Windows. This is not a built in feature of windows so you can't do it out of the box.

An old operating system software upgrade question for technical support from Girlfriend 7.0 to Wife 1.0

--------------------------------- Letter to Technical Support--------------------------- Dear Tech Support, Last year I upgraded from Girlfriend 7.0 to Wife 1.0. I soon noticed that the new program began unexpected child processing that took up a lot of space and valuable resources. No mention of this was included with the product information. In addition, Wife 1.0 installed itself into all other programs and now launches during system initialization, where it monitors all other system activity. Applications such as Poker Night 10.3, Drunken Boys Night 2.5, Football 5.0, Hockey 3.0, Hunting and Fishing 7.5 and Racing 3.6 no longer run, crashing the system whenever selected. I can't seem to keep Wife 1.0 in the background while attempting to run my favorite applications. I'm thinking about going back to Girlfriend 7.0, but the Uninstall doesn't work on Wife 1.0. Please help! Thanks, Signed, A Troubled User --------------------------------- Reply from

European Official Language

As part of the negotiations, Her Majesty's Government conceded that English spelling had some room for improvement and has accepted a 5-year phase-in plan that would be known as "Eurenglish": In the first year, "s" will replace the soft "c".
