    Thanks for your interest Sandrew, I did what you said but it still won't delete in safe mode. I get the same message.

    It was an attachment I saved on my desktop, it saved it twice, the attachment and an empty file. both look the same, one is 88kb the one I can't delete has 0bytes, the file name has no extension, just File.

    I use a Levono laptop OS XP

    If you can think of anything else to try please let me know

    regards Toni

Restart you pc, but keep pressing F8 while its booting up, this will get you into a menu where you need to select 'start windows in safe mode', then when prompted for the operating system choose windows then allow it to run.

You will then be presented with a large sized desktop with you account and administrator account, choose either then go to the folder you wish to delete and delete it, restart pc and then it should be running as normal

Cannot set as desktop


If you are unable to change or display the wallpaper of your Windows 7 or Vista desktop, try this :
(1) Open Control Panel > Ease of Access Center > Make the computer easier to see.
viswalp.jpgEnsure that Remove background images (where available) is unchecked.
Save, Apply, Exit.
This should help !
(2) If it doesnt, try this:
Run regedit and navigate to the following key:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies
Then right click on Policies > New > KEY > name it as "ActiveDesktop".
Next in RHS, rt click > New > DWORD > name it as "NoChangingWallPaper" .
The DWORD value 1 will restrict change in desktop wallpaper. To allow change give it value as 0.
Reboot.
(3) If it still doesnt work, maybe your TranscodedWallpaper.jpg file has become corrupted.
Open explorer and type the following in the adress bar and hit Enter:

%USERPROFILE%\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Windows\Themes\
Here, rename TranscodedWallpaper.jpg to TranscodedWallpaper.old.
Next, double-click slideshow.ini file to open it with Notepad. Empty its contents. That is, select all the text and delete it. Save the changes. Close explorer windows.
Hope something helps!

How do i increase my gmail account space


Gmail allows for quite a big amount of space but I don't think they offer a higher amount for a fee like some of the other webmail accounts do.

You may have no other option but to keep the spam folder emptied, empty the trash file and sort thru and delete any old mail you don't wish to keep.

Text itself doesn't amount to much space. It is photos, jpgs, and other attachments that take larger amounts of space so getting rid of all of that you don't need to save will free a lot of space for new mail.

I PUT 203 EMAILS IN THE TRASH. HOW DO I SAVE ALL OF THEM INTO A FOLDER. CAN YOU HELP ME.?


The Trash folder deletes itself every few days, without your having any control over the timing. The best solution for saving 'deleted' e-mails to act upon at your own time is to create a new folder (My Own Trash ?, My Deletes ?) and move all deleted e-mails to that folder. You can move many at one time by using the check boxes beside each mail, then select Move. Don't forget to empty this folder once in a while ... :-)

This depends of the email client you are using. If they are sent as attachments then save those attachments or download them to your hard drive. If they are embedded in the email then you will want to right click on the pictures and choose 'save as'.
Once the pictures are in the desired folder you can right click on the file again and choose 'rename' This will give you the option to name the picture anyway you like.

I need to delete protected files from my pc running xp


Those files are protected for good reason, they are usually protected operating system files. Delete those and your PC will stop booting. If you KNOW the files are not essential then you can unprotect them using an unlocker. Windows washer has a file delete on reboot option, as well as malwarebytes and advanced windows care. They can delete the files as the system reloads.

My delete button stopped deleting emails in Outlook Express


You may have maxed out your storage. Try moving the deleted messages to a new folder if working with Outlook Express you can save the messages. Moving messages to Trash still counts toward your storage. If using Web mail, download and save the messages to a folder. Once done, you can safely delete these messages, freeing up your server for more traffic.

Unable to save my word documents when I click on save


If it was truely a shortcut and was deleted, the data is still in the folder on the hardrive (c:) and can be accessed with the file manager or exploring the c: (root) drive. once you find it , right click on it , select "make shortcut, then drag the shortcut to your desktop.
If it was a folder (not a shortcut) on your desktop that was deleted, you should be able to find the folder in your Recycle Bin and select it and click on RESTORE and that should put it back where it was .
If it was a folder and deleted and the recycle bin was emptied, it is lost unless you pay someone HIGH dollar to retrieve data from your harddrive that was deleted.
Hope this fixes ya up , post again if you need further assistance.
Regards..

Try to delete unnecessary files on your computer, coz your computer is low in memory. open up your printer if theres a pending document then try to clean or empty it. boot your pc. Then try to print your document.
