Hi, i am trying to delete the temp files in the windows/temp directory but they won't delete. It says a program is using them but even when i try and get rid of them in safe mode they won't delete, how can i get rid of them?

Also when i try to run a panda online virus scan i click on the scan my computer icon and it does nothing but there is a little yellow exclamation mark on the bottom left of the window, is that why it isn't doing anything and if so, how can i fix it?

thanks

What are the files that won't delete? Many applications use the temp folder for storage. Why do you want to delete these files anyway if they are in use?

If you want to remove them, try these methods:

MoveOnBoot:

Dr.Delete:

Inuse.exe:

Movefile (in the same folder as the program "pendmoves" that reveals processes to be completed on reboot, like the installation of Windows Updates):

BusyDelete:

And the "Remove on reboot" shell extension:

For the problem with Panda, check their support links or remove the Panda software and reinstall it. There is probably an ActiveX control in the Windows\Downloaded Program Files folder you can try updating (right-click) or removing for reinstallation by the Panda site.
