    nobody have any other ideas? i tried scanning it with my virus scanner and it didn't show up as a virus but it won't go away. i closed all the programs on my comp and it still won't go away.

    Thanks Josdin

    Usually the best bet is to shut your comp down, and then restart it. After you restart it make sure the first thing you do is delete the file you want to get rid of, that way nothing else will have a chance of using it.

    If you downloaded it off of Limewire (or Kazaa or a similar program) someone else might be uploading it, in which case you can't delete it. If it's Limewire, go to the Moniter section and you can see what people are uploading from your hard drive. If that song is being uploaded, cancel it and then try to delete it.

    Thanks PPE for the sig.
