I am running Windows XP Home and, in doing some housekeeping of my hard drive, have two old subdirectories that I have mostly cleaned out of files. I have attempted to delete the top directory of these two subdirectories and, when I do, the first attempt to delete creates the following dialog box message:

"VLoadiing.dll (which is the name of a file within the subdirectory being deleted) is being used by another program. Close the program and try to delete again."

An attempt to delete the second subdirectory creates the message below:

"PowerReg Scheduler V3.exe (which is the name of a file within the subdirectory being deleted) is being used by another program. Close the program and try to delete again."

I do not see these programs being used by any process. I have run a number of different adware, malware, antivirus, etc. etc. programs and none of them have come to the conclusion that these files are a problem.

QUESTION: How can I delete these files from these old subdirectories so that I may then delete the subdirectories.

Thank you very much in advance for your assistance.

Try doing this in "SAFE MODE" or use download and use Unlocker.

Unlocker helps delete locked files with error messages like:
-Cannot delete file: Access is denied
-There has been a sharing violation.
-The source or destination file may be in use.
-The file is in use by another program or user.
-Make sure the disk is not full or write-protected and that the file is not currently in use.

1. After install, right click the folder or file and select Unlocker from the menu.
2. If the folder or file is locked, a window listing of lockers will appear.
3. Click "Unlock All" and you are done.

Thanks VERY much for your reply to my query about removing (unlocking) the VLoading.dll and PowerReg..... files form old subdirectories. I spent far too long pulling my hair out over this until I found the BleepingComputer.com sight.
Thanks again.
David
