Deleting files in Projects list

I am unable to delete some incomplete files in the Projects List.

These are old downloads that for some reason I did not complete with Download Express, but I used another download manager.

I delete the files from the list, but as soon as the list is reloaded, the file is there again!

Using Download Express 1.6 under Windows XP Home Edition SP1

I have found the file projects.ini in the Application Data and can see the three files I want to delete.

Can I edit projects.ini to correct the problem?

Alexander,

That did not work. The three files were still there and a new file was created in Application Data - Projects.ini.sbm

Have managed to delete the files another way though.

Edited each project and changed the "save to" into a temporary filename. Resumed the downloads and when each had downloaded some data, paused each download. I was then able to delete them correctly!!

Forgot to say that I restored a backup of Projects.ini from before the edit.
