It’s an easy process to save any document onto a hard disk and delete it when I want. I have some files which are not needed for me right now. I want to delete it but it cannot be deleted and sends a message like below:
Error Deleting File or Folder
Cannot delete ALL FONT DISPLAY.ai: It is being used by another person or program.
Close any programs that might be using the file and try again.
File not delete form hard disk
Seems to me that you are having difficulty deleting files on your computer. This happened more than once to me before, but a different file. There is a possibility that when you start your computer OneNote, Microsoft Word, Excel, etc. are being used. All you need to do is disable those programs on the startup.
If you are using windows XP:
Go to Services tab.
Check Hide all Microsoft Services
Go to Startup Tab.
Try to delete the file again.
I hope this helps.
