Can't delete 0KB Files

Hello,

I recently bought a Windows 7 platform laptop. When I download files from a certain website, Axis and Allies Member Club (AAMC), they come in as xxx.aam or xxx.map files. For some reason I am getting not only the actual file but a duplicate file with 0KB space. I don't know why this is occurring and if it is the website or Windows 7 but it did not happen when I used my old XP platform laptop. When I try to delete the duplicate file with 0KB space I get a "file not found" message.

I tried using Unlocker to delete the files but it is not available for Windows 7 yet. Does anyone know of a freeware program that can delete these files on Windows 7? The simpler the process to delete them the better since I have a lot of these files and it will continue to grow unless something changes.

Thank you...

Thank you Broni,

I downloaded Lockhunter 1.0 Beta 3 but when I tried to open it I get an error message saying "This program can only be installed on versions of Windows designed for the following processor architectures: x86". I am confused, I thought Windows 7 was an x86 architecture?

Also FYI I have resolved the problem with any future 0KB files. I reinstalled Firefox and the creation of new duplicate 0KB file seems to have stopped. Firefox must have been causing the corrupted file.

Most likely, you have 64-bit Windows version.
I'm glad, you solved your problem :huh:

I can see from LockHunter site, they have two versions, 32-bit and 64-bit.
