    1. Download, and install Unlocker: http://ccollomb.free.fr/unlocker/
    Restart computer.
    It'll install under right click menu.

    Open Windows Explorer.
    Navigate to offending folder/file.

    Right click on a folder/file. Click Unlocker
    Select Delete from drop-down menu:

    Click OK.
    A folder/file will refuse to be deleted, but Unlocker will give you an option to delete on reboot:

    Click Yes.
    Restart computer.

    ==============================================================

    If the above doesn't work, try...

    LockHunter: http://lockhunter.com/

    FileASSASSIN: http://www.snapfiles.com/get/fileassassin.html


    2. Safely yes.

    3. See, if same problem exist in Safe Mode with Networking

    4. Post exact message, a screenshot maybe?

    5. Explain more, please

    6. Never update non-MS drivers through Windows updates. Often, it's a disaster. Hide that update. If your video is fine, leave the driver alone. If something wrong, go to nVidia site for an update.

    Yes, sorry, I've had a very very difficult week. I haven't had time to finish working on the computer. I'm going to try to finish up tomorrow
