    DELETE CORRUPTED AVI / DIVX FILES
    Files with the file extension of .AVI are Windows Video files. The letters AVI stand for Audio Video Interleave. These "movie" files can be played with Windows Media Player (as well as other programs of the same type) and can be downloaded from the internet in many different places. Sometimes when you download one, it may be corrupted and will not play correctly. If you try to delete it in Windows Explorer, often you find that you cannot! You will get an error message such as this:

    Error deleting file or folder
    Cannot delete (name of file): It's being used by another person or program. Close any program that might be using the file and try again.

    Usually, there will be no other program trying to use the file. You find you cannot rename or copy or move it to another location also.

    The problem lies in a known fault with XP's Windows Explorer:

    When you click on an AVI file in Windows Explorer, the operating system will attempt to read the entire file in order to determine the dimensions, duration, bitrate, etc. of the file. During this process you might experience 100% CPU usage. If the file is broken or not fully downloaded, you will have problems trying to copy, move, rename, or delete it.

    In order to solve this problem, you will have to use the Registry Editor. Click the Start button, click Run on the Start Menu, type in REGEDIT. Navigate on the left pane of the Regedit window to the following key:

    HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\SystemFileAssociations\.avi\shellex\PropertyHandler


    Then, in the right pane, after clicking on the PropertyHandler key in the left pane, you will see the Default value which should be

    {87D62D94-71B3-4b9a-9489-5FE6850DC73E}

    Right click on the value and select Delete from the Context Menu. Then close Regedit.

    Hey ad use the search function

    Right click here and save target as. When the file is downloaded right click the file and choose install.

    Then delete Your file.

    or

    In Windows XP You can delete the file this way:

    Start -> Run -> Command -> cd c:\YOUR FOLDER NAME -> del YOUR FILE.avi

    this is because it searches for the words with each post , and words like divx , avi delete are everywhere
