I'm having a problem with windows search

I found this MS article and I'm trying to follow instructions

http://support.microsoft.com/kb/2484025

"To resolve this issue, delete all files with .BLF and .REGTRANS-MS extension in the following directory:

C:\windows\system32\config\TxR

Note: The files in the folder location above are hidden and will thus not be visible unless you set the system to not Hide Protected Operating System Files under Tools - Folder Options.

Once these files are deleted, reboot the machine. Once rebooted, observe that the Windows Search service has already started and is in process of rebuilding the Index."

I got to see the mentioned files but I can't delete some of them because they are in use.

Any idea how I can force delete them?

Thanks!

I found a way to do it.

Run cmd as admin

Ctrl+Alt+Del

Kill explorer.exe

Proceed to delete files.

All files where gone!!!

The bad news, Windows Search still not working.
