Deleting files in Windows Explorer/Several Q.

Hello all,

I have installed Windows 7 Ultimate.
I had WinXP and really know how to handle them real good.

When I am at windows explorer and delete some files they don't disappear unless I refresh the folder.
Why is that?

PS:Can I ask other questions here,too instead of creating a new thread?


Thank you for your time.

What files are you trying to delete?

If you are the 'Administrator', you can right click and choose to "take ownership", then delete.
If a file is in use, you will have to stop the file from running using 'Task Manager', then boot into safe mode and delete the file's folder.

If this is a program that you downloaded, then uninstall it before deleting the folder (which will delete the file in it).

Well I was trying to delete movies in avi form
and an old folder of Windows at one of my HDDs.

About the "Take Ownership" you 've said, I cannot find it. :-S
