I have a file on my computer desktop (Windows XP Home) that is an exe file. At some point last night I much have accidentally clicked run after opening it and it gave me an MSDOS icon, when I opened it it gave me two txt files containing some information that I don't think I should have. Any way I want to delete the whole mess but when I try to delete the original exe file it says the file is in use by another person or computer. What do I need to do to get rid of this exe file.
(edit) I am pretty sure I posted this in the wrong section, my bad.
