any thoughts, ideas? anything i can do to delete these programs?
because i dled some bios update programs that are in dos and now i can't remove them from my computer, i never used them.
is the bios update running?
how do you mean? i never updated my bios or put them on a floppy disk or anything.
you started a thread asking how to delete a RUNNING program.
Well if you just downloaded a program, it doesn't automatically run. So if it is say on your desktop, you just delete it.
But if you try to delete it and it says the file is in use... first understand why it is being used. Then if you know it can be removed with no problems, ctrl-alt-delete and end the process. Then delete the file.
Try deleting it in safe mode. Or search for a program called Dr. Delete. It can sometimes delete "in use" files when nothing short of sticking the hard disk in another machine will touch it.
