Hi, I seem to have a problem with deleting a file/foler. When I try and
delete it, it says "Cannot Delete ShellExt...bla bla...May be currently in
use or write-protected..bla" I'm pretty sure it's being used when my
computer starts up, but I can't seem to find the startup item that's using
it.. Anyone know a way to help me find it?
