I have a windows form application that I use to scan pdf and jpg documents. In the form I placed a webbrowser control to preview the scanned files.
All the file paths are displayed in a listbox and when the listindex change the webbrowser navigate to the file showing it.
Sometimes may happen that the scan isn't good or something like that so I need to delete the file, but when I select the file to delete it's opened in the webbrowser. I have no problem with jpeg, but with pdf it throws an exception telling that is impossible to delete the file because it's opened in another application.
I could kill the acrobat process but it's not the solution I want.
I tried to make the webbrowser navigate to about:blank and to dispose the webbrowser but with no luck.
Plus when I shut down the computer it always tells me that there is a document opened in acrobat and ask me if I want to close it. I think is related to my application.
Any help is appreciated
