FolderDeleteIssue

Long ago I've installed PandoreService. I've uninstalled it, but the file in my Program Files cannot be removed. When I try to delete it, it says: ''the folder or file is open in another program''. What to do to remove it??

Hi,

Try this.

Start> Run then type

services.msc

OK

Scroll down the list and look for anything related to Pandora

If you see such a service post the service name exactly as it's written.

How to:
Right click the service then choose "properties" - post whatever text is displayed next to Service Name in your reply.

Hello Crysis,

In addition, you could also use the free program Unlocker to delete them.

You can probably remove it with "MoveOnBoot" which can be downloaded from the following and is free;

MoveOnBoot Free - Rename/Move/Delete Locked Files on Reboot
