Windows Annoyance, Pt. 1

After 8 Years of UNIX desktop (where not much changed – sure, glitzy-shiny features in the dozen, but still lacking in the usability and integration department), I bought a Windows license.

No Operating System without some weird corners, so I think I’ll collect such issues here (while looking for solutions). Sooo…

Episode 1: Try to delete a movie in a folder you just opened a few seconds ago. "This file is in use".. That thumbnailer/metadata extractor stuff again, with no obvious way to get rid of it (or to teach it how to read that file in a non-blocking way)

The "get rid of it" part is easy: regsvr32 /u shmedia.dll
