i have a file list box and made it so when you double click a file it deletes it it work good but only when in a directory like c:\stuff but if i am on on c:\ it gives the error cant find file because this line (Dir1.Path & "\" & File1.List(i) ) makes  it say C:\\ how can i fix this problem this is the complete code i am using
If File1.ListIndex <> -1 Then
For i = 0 To File1.ListCount - 1
If File1.Selected(i) Then Kill Dir1.Path & "\" & File1.List(i)
ProgressBar1.Max = File1.ListCount - 1
ProgressBar1.Value = i
Next i
End If
ProgressBar1.Value = 0
File1.Refresh
 thanks

You need to check to see if the rightmost char on the Dir1.Path is "\" and don't stick a 2nd one on if so.

work = Dir1.Path
if right( work, 1 ) <> "\" then work = work & "\"
work = work & File1.List(i)
If File1.Selected(i) Then Kill work
