How to delete some large files of Aol desktop 9.6 on drive c ?


I use windows 7 sp1 and have installed Aol Desktop 9.6 months ago.

I have seen that the file " aolsoftware_RASAPI32.LOG " on this adrres : C:\Windows\tracing has 500 MB size and the file " cache.db " on this adreess : C:\ProgramData\AOL\TopSpeed\3.0 has 250 MB.

I can t delete them because of a error that says the files are open in Aol, even if Aol is closed.

How can i delet these files ?
