I am having serious problem with media files (only video files). When I try to rename or delete files or folders containing media files, I get an error like this:
Access Denied .... Some other program might be using this file..... bla bla bla
Previously for this kind of problem I used a freeware application, Unlocker, which simply killed the process that was using the file. However in this case, the process identified as using the files is Explorer.exe - how can this be?
If I copy the original file, I can rename the copy, delete it, do anything - but I can't do anything to the original file.
Here's some other points:
- I am using Windows XP SP2
- I have DivX Player installed (latest)
- The media files are from both my hard drive (created by many of my previous Windows installations) and newly downloaded files. Therefore file ownership or security is not an issue.
- If I'm unable to rename or delete a file at a given moment, if I try again it is sometimes successful.
