    Hi...I have just realised I have replied to an oldish thread,but actually I need urgent help if anyone can offer it.

    I am none too hot on the computer so any instructions will have to be in "kidspeak"

    I can`t access my ntuser.dat file on a SHARED laptop.It is a huge file and I know it stores user data. Each time I try to open it it says something like;

    process can`t open this file as it is being used by another person or process.
    How can I access it and delete anything without too much hassle?

    Thanks

    Hello India101,

    Ease your worries by Googling "How to use CleanUp! to Protect your Privacy,"
    it should lead you to a tutorial at BleepingComputer. Just follow the directions, a reboot will take care of the rest. ;)

    An alternative if you'd prefer accomplishing this without additional software. Both are viable.

    OK...thanks for your replies but now I`m really concerned.Yesterday the file I was referring to was linked to MY documents.
    Today after having mailed my husband [who is working away] to ask him why I can`t access this file....it is now linked to HIS documents.
    Is he doing this from another computer....I still cannot access the file.

    Sorry to be a nuisance but this is serious if he is spying on me.Yes,I need my privacy but I am using forums for self help issues [I have a brain disease] and personal issues which I need to keep private.

    As in a doctors surgery,you have SOME right to privacy when it concerns personal details.

    Sorry to be a nuisance.
    And I DO need all the instructions in the simplest of directions DOH
