  1. I was attempting to download the free Dnd online trial from Fileplanet however on both occasions i did his i ended up with an error and hence an unsucseeful dowload, both files were left as .part files and i alls got bundled in with it a couple of (one 24kb and the other 4kb) executables when i attemped a retry. Needless to say they don't work and now they wont delete off my compy or be moved, apparently another user or program is using it.

    It's not a dowload service like limewire using them and it can't be another user, is there any way i can find out what is using it and how i make it stop. BTW both files are called dndsetup-EN_GB.exe, one's on my desktop and the other's in My Documents

    Hello and welcome to Techspot.

    Try booting into safe mode, see if you can delete the files then.

    If not, download the Pocket killbox programme from HERE. Just follow the instructions and it should get rid of those files easily.
