    Default unable to delete WAV file in windows 8

    Hi all,

    I have windows 8 release preview installed. I saved WAV file on my desktop last night. I would like to delete it. However, I found delete it, even can't move, rename or view properties. It's some how using 100% of my CPU and slowing down everything.

    Whenever I try to delete it it says "preparing to recycle..." and never finishes.

    Do you have any good idea? Thank you.

    You might have some malware on your PC. I would try a full scan with MalwareBytes Antimalware. You could try to Take Ownership of the file then delete.
