    Unhappy Help! Locked rar file

    I created a very large rar archive (~5.3GB). Now, I can't do ANYTHING with it. I just want to delete it. When I try to delete it, I just get an error message saying it's in use. I have rebooted, etc.

    I've searched around, googled, etc., and can't seem to find any solution.

    Please help!

    Boot in safe mode and try to delete it then.
    Also end any services that are not nessary and your problem will most likely be solved.

    I tried safe mode, no luck. I'll give the services thing a shot this afternoon.
