Can anyone help me delete some files for the prefetch file? I keep getting an error saying the file is busy or damaged.

Well, here is the path: C:\WINDOWS\Prefetch
You have to turn on 'View All Files' under folder options, because the files in this folder are hidden. Then find the file that is screwed and delete it.

Solution

If deleteing the file in safe mode fail's to work as well, use the XP boot disk and go into Consule Rec. Mode, it will ask you for your Admin password if you are using XP Home it is space enter, if you are using XP Pro it is whatever you set your admin password to on startup.
