Question Folder Deleting problem.

I just recently downloaded a folder with some music in it. I took all the music out of the folder and moved it to where i want them.

After that, i tried to delete the folder, but it wont let me delete it. It pops up a box that says, "Cannot delete P.O.D. - Testify: It is being used by another person or program.....ect"

It's in MY DOCUMENTS.

Well, i only have ONE account on my computer. I dont have anything on my computer that would be using it. There is nothing in it. I've scanned it with a Rootkit scanner, my antivirus, and 3 malware and spyware scanners..... nothing came up.

What should i do to get rid of it?

please, and thank you.

Try deleting it in safemode, if this doesn't work go to command prompt and then delete it.

Thank the gods for that unlocker program.

Before I used to open cmd, then end explorer.exe and delete it that way and re run explorer.
