My file wouldnt let me either-the normal way. I used 7zip to open the containing folder (was just a regular user folder-not zipped) and it worked. Dunno why

Look under the Tools tab, It's called File Assassin.

um....7 zip doesn't work either ...i guess i just gonna hide the file for now .....by hiding the whole desktop folder ..and un"hidden" the files that i needed ...... thank you all


and here is something that i think what caused this to happen....
so far i believe that the .flv file is not using by other process....
so my guess is ...maybe something wrong with the file origin.

the person who created that .flv file on he/she's computer has a different file permission, on the file or it's origin folder when unzip , and because i made another copy onto the desktop , the permission is not longer exist , and that is why i cant rename , delete, move the file that is on my desktop

however i can delete the folder (also with the .flv in it) where the .flv was resided when i unzip the file.

Did you try using the file assassin, or are you doing something different now?

You could use the take ownership take ownership , once you run this reg file, right click the file, and select the take ownership option, then try to delete the file. Worse case scenario, reboot in safe mode, or safe mode with command prompt, then navigate to the file then delete. Let me know if you need help with synthax.
