    I was downloading a movie with utorrent and it stopped working so i deleted the torrent and data. But a .dat file still remains on my desktop and it wont go away. I tried deleting it, moving it, and renaming it but nothing works. When i try to delete it, the window pops up saying it is being deleted but it never makes any progress. Can anyone help me? Also im using vista os if that makes a difference.

    Did you try a reboot first?

    stop your torrent program, reboot and try. If that doesn't work, I can recommend a program.
