I have downloaded some music files and a couple of films, with BitComet. When i download the files they usualy go into my download folder, but some of them have ended up on my desktop. I have deleted them from BitComet, and tried to delete them from my desktop. For some reason it´s saying that the files are open somewhere else, so it can´t delete them. I can´t seem to find out where they are, so i can´t delete them. Help wanted, thanks

Hi,I have already asked this question with only one reply of Queen lia. I said that i have downloaded some music files and a couple of films. I have used Bit torrent to download the files. They usualy go into the download file in My Documents, for some reason they have ended up on My Desktop.
I have deleted them from the Bit torrent prog, but they still remained on my Desktop. It is saying that they canīt be deleted as they are open somewhere else Queen Lia sugested i go into safe mode and delete them there, which i did and they deleted, but the next time i started the computer they were there again.

There must be an answer somewhere. Can someone help please. Thanks

only one reply of Queen lia < < I think you mean Queen-Evie here -

There is always a chance of downloading bad extras from most Torrent sites, as most are easily infected by internet pests.
Have you attempted to remove them with Revo Uninstaller yet ?? - Here are some directions (and an example) for you to try -

1) First we download it from here: Revo Uninstaller Free Version. You can skip this Step if you already have it installed.
However, you may need to update it. If you have it installed already, and you need to update it, go ahead and open it up and click the AutoUpdate Icon next to Help.
The use of this program makes registry changes based upon what you select for removal from the Registry.
Before running Revo Uninstaller please run ERUNT before proceeding to back up your registry in case you make a mistake.

2) Select the Programs (one at a time only) to remove from the list of programs and click the Uninstall button:

3) After selecting the program you want to remove, and confirming you want to uninstall the program, then you will want to select the Advanced Option:

4) Click Next. This will start the uninstaller for the application you picked. When the uninstaller is done, and it proves to be successful, and a reboot is required, then select NO and continue the below steps.

5) Follow the prompts during the uninstallation of the application. Once it closes you will be at this window:

6) Click Next again. Once the window is done scanning for files and other things that did not get removed, you will be presented with this window:

You will want to select (tick) only the bolded items, then click on Delete. If any entries-usually the last thing listed and not in bold-have a + sign click on the + until you see more bolded items. Once done, click Next.

If it asks you to delete other files, then do so, but always pay attention to the warnings.

I hope this helps you .............
