i am trying to delete some photo files that are rather large to save some space on my hard drive. The files are a combination of bitmaps and TIFs. Everytime I try to delete these I get the message "cannot delete. Access is denied. The source file may be in use"

However, I am not using them for anything and this message appears even if I try and delete immediately after start up.

I am using windows ME

Any advice would be welcome

thank you very much, rebooting didn't work, but starting up in safe mode did solve the problem. Thanks again - Ian
