File or folder used by Windows or other process is automatically locked from being renamed, moved or deleted. Windows doesn't provide details so you won't have an idea what application holds the lock and how you can proceed. MoveOnBoot is a free tool designed for such situation. You can get delete/rename/move of these annoying files/folders at the next system restart. Its usage is simple, just launch MoveOnBoot and the tool will display all the files/folders that are currently locked. To move or rename a file/folder, just click Move from the toolbar and choose the desired action the next system boot.
