Hi,

I have an ISO file on my computer which has been there for a long time, but recently whenever I've tried to use it I just get an error saying: "The semaphore timeout period has expired". I get the same error if I try to delete it. Please can someone tell me how to fix or delete the file?

Thanks,
Joe

Edit: I've just got the same error when trying to open a folder on the same drive.

You can give Unlocker a try and see if it will delete the file or use it.
