In a lot of systems "Kill" is not allowed...

In that case you can use the "FileSystemObject"

Yep, the "kill" stuff gives me a "File not found".
Gonna try the other solution.

Well, "File not found" means just that...
It could not find the file.
Be *sure* to check your spelling...
..Check the spelling of the *Folder* as well.

If the file you specify is MyName.txt,
 but the actual file name is: MyName1.txt
...Then any system will display "File not found"
