I have restarted my computer a few times but still the file which I want to
delete can't be deleted because some other program is using the file. I have
used a tool called dh before to locate the process but either I have
forgotten how to use it or it doesn't work anymore. Is there any other way to
locate the process which has locked a certain file on Windows XP?

you might consider using WhoLockMe. The program has a handy Explorer
extension, which shows which Windows process is locking the file.
