Hi
I have a problem deleting 3 files on my vista laptop .I tried normally to delete it and ive tried eraser and when i right click eraser dose not show on these three files .Which is strange .
I cant move them as well . is there some why to get rid of them ???

Did you try restarting the computer? Maybe they will be gone after a restart.

What are the file names and where are they located? Try right-clicking each one and then click properties. Post back what they are.

You might want to have a look at Unlocker http://ccollomb.free.fr/unlocker/

It lets you delete locked files.

Do you have Paint Shop Pro installed on the computer? With that file extension, they sound like files from that program.

0 bytes means the files have no content... they are empty. I would follow roger_m's suggestion for Unlocker.
