Chances are if you have been using a computer, you have ran into one or more of the following messages:
  • Cannot delete file: Access is denied.
  • Make sure the disk is not full or write-protected and that the file is not currently in use.
  • The source or destination file may be in use.
  • The file is in use by another program or user.


These are very common messages that occur when attempting to delete files that a particular malware infection put onto your system. Malwarebytes is all too familiar with these messages, which is why we created FileASSASSIN. Learn more.
