    After I capture using Virtualdub and after quitting the program, I
    cannot delete the avi files, especially the 12KB ones that are used by
    the spill system.

    I have to manually kill explorer and delete them from a command
    prompt. This is a major waste of time.

    Has anyone had this problem? I dont know why explorer created handles
    on these files, but some of the avi files locked by explorer are not
    even part of the spill system, and have never been accessed since the
    last reboot.

    heres the open handles reported by handle.exe (sysinternals freeware)

    explorer.exe pid: 1540 C:\CAPTURE000.00.avi
    explorer.exe pid: 1540 F:\Videos\CAPTURE002.02.avi
