This problem often arises with files downloaded by Limewire or similar. WMV, WMA, MOV and m4A files can all be modified to contain more than just music or video. Unfortunately, people take advantage of this to send you nasties, or sometimes simply to just annoy you!I'd imagine more than one teen has lost his allowance because the file entitled 'nubile cheerleader caught by webcam in toilet' or some such terribly incriminating title has been locked and he can't delete it from mums computer!Its not just movies and not always porn either. I had a similar problem with a WMA file of Perry Como once lol.. it wouldnt play and wouldnt delete.Here is how to deal with it.Windows Media Player builds a library, which consists of shortcuts to your music and video files. These files will exist somewhere else in your computer.The first thing you will need to do is find the offending files real location!Use the 'search' option in your Start menu if you have any problems finding the file.With all Media players, Windows or otherwise, closed, try to delete the file.If this doesnt work, then try booting into safe mode and deleting the file whilst in safe mode.If you still dont have any success, then you are going to need this free program.http://www.emco.is/download/moveonboot/moveonbootsetup.exeThis program will delete the file on the next restart, before anything can lock it.I have had plenty of these kind of files. MoveOnBoot has successfully dealt with all but one. That particular file, which was labelled Princess Diana's Wedding, was a particularly disgusting piece of bestial porn, and thwarted all efforts to remove it. My final solution for that one was to access the Windows folders via Linux and delete it without starting Windows at all.My policy to prevent collecting these annoying files...?
