Hi,
I copied all my documents to a floppy disk and was trying to
delete most of the my doc's It seems I get more copies of
everything instead of deleting them. I must have 300 things
in there now. What I must do to delete all that stuff?
Any help would be appreciated

Hi Spidertom:

To get rid of stuff that doesn't want to leave I use Unlocker. It works like magic:

Cheers,

The files are replicating?
How are you trying to delete them?

Have you tried deleting it, in Safe Mode?
How to start Windows in Safe Mode

Have you tried renaming the file, then deleting it?
Name it anything you want, like trash, old, useless, ........ whatever.

If the above doesn't work, this free program should get rid of them:

they all of a sudden went. Thanks for the suggestions
