Windows 7: problem with deleting files

This is why I suggested the solution in the link I gave above. This involves using a live version of Linux in order to browse and delete the file(s)/folder(s) in question. Because the Windows OS isn't running, there isn't any problem with another program using the file(s) and/or folder(s).

@richc46: thx, I download it and run it and o see the its icon, but when I do right click on any my files I can't see the unlocker option!
@CassieFWinTeam: I tried , it didn't work!
@Dwarf: I will try the live linux solution, but does it mean whenever i want to delet a flie in my desktop or my documents I should run from CD and...

I want to know what could be the reason for this? is there any backup system that restore the files? what is the problem?

Which files/folders are the re-appearing ones?

I see EXE's for Avira and !Avast on Desktop. They may have something to do with this.

Oh wow... Deja View.... You have Avira.exe on your desktop, all 48 megs of it! When you put exe files on your desktop they are going to treat the desktop as their working folder and create teir data files there... Hense the files that keep coming back.

Dump the EXEs from your desktop and install them properly in c:\Program Files\ and then make a shortcut to the EXE on your desktop and your problem will go away.

I also notice that when I log in to my accound, I get this message: " your roaming user profile didn't Synch comletely with server..."

I also log in with computer Admin username and pass instead of my profile and create a file on desktop and delete it , and when I log in again it was gone. then this problem is just whitin my user profile.

I don't know if these information is any useful!

thanks guys
