I run windows 7, and i was opening a jpg file i downloaded from the web. I opened the file with windows image viewer, closed it and when i tried to delete it it told me i couldnt do that because the file was still open in System. I tried again and got the same response. After a few tries, maybe like 5-10 sec, it deleted as normally. I then remade the file and it deleted fine with no error.
But now im a little worried, that it might have been open in System because it was installing some virus or trojan? or am i just being paranoid and it was just slow to close? I have never seen this before. Although i also panicked a little when the same thing happened with an avi file, where it said something about server not responding. I know now that that was nothing to worry about, but is this?
I have researched it a bit, and the only thing i have found is ISO files getting this error because they are mounted, but nothing for simple jpgs.
