I had downloaded a video from Youtube then converted it to an .wmv file using Freemake video converter.
It all seemed to go fine and I got the converted .wmv file, but then I found a copy of the video I did not expect and now it will not delete.
If I try delete it normally by right clicking and then hitting delete I get a pop up window showing it being sent to the recycling bin but it never completes, it just keeps running!
How do I delete this thing ?22.jpgImage Enlarger

Try Unlocker: http://www.filehippo.com/download_unlocker/

A great little program that will delete just about anything for you.

Hi Jim
I thought of unlocker when I first read that post. Although I use unlocker when I have too I will uninstall it when I have accomplished my task. Like you said it will help uninstall almost any file, good and bad.
