What about error messages - are there any? ;)
What happens if you select 'Move to Chest' instead of delete?

And, what OS are you using?

Joe,

Yes...this happens sometimes with Avast 4.
Use Move to Chest, then open the Chest and delete.
This should work.

I had the same problem with Win32 (Happy99).

Good Luck.
