    Is it ever listed in running processes? if so, kill the process then try to delete it.. Or delete it in dos mode

    afd.exe is never in sys processes.
    hmm but when i used
    run
    command.com
    c:\<dir file was in>\del afd.exe <----worked. why? dunno

    why could i delete it in dos while running windows, but windows would not allow me to delete it?

    simply because when you tell windows to delete it, it actaully checks to see if the file is in use, in DOS, it just hits it with a hammer, if its in use... tough! lol

    well ok, it is more complicated than that I agree, but I did not want to go into file locks and process execution either.

    BTW, handy little tool I found, lets you select a file to move/rename/delete and then it performs the action you want when windows reboots, quite handy to get rid of those files that just wont go! click here
