    Cool Temp Files wont delete

    When I go into temporary files on my computer there are always two files that say I can't delete because it is being used by another program could you tell me what they are use for and how do I delete them (they first appeared when I first connected to the internet)

    The files are:
    ~DF725B
    ~DFAB24

    which temp files are you talking about? there are several windows default ones.

    also turn off "hide known file types" etc so you can veiw the extention.
    Tweak it till it breaks

    Do they appear in the Content IE folder? In which case they are part of your system files. You can delete the contents but not the file.

    If it's not that try deleting them in Safe Mode, that way the program should not be running. HTH..........m

    You mean like in C:\Windows\Temp?

    Not familiar with XP. If that's what you mean and can't get rid of them then try it in Safe Mode.

    Or boot into safe mode and delete them.

    Have a look at the properties of the files. If the date and time look right, they are "in use" because they are being used "right now". If so, you mustn't remove them.

    Temporary files are created for a reason.
