    When i download a file but part of the way through i cancel the download, a desktop icon of what i was downloading is on my desktop but it wont let me delete it because it says the file is being used in another program. What's up with that???

    Vista can be a strange animal, if the actual location of the download is elsewhere but the icon is being used on the desktop then that is what is being used elsewhere !, try deleting it from the folder view in explorer of the desktop instead of the desktop itself, if that fails try the desktop clean up wizard thingy and check the box next to the icon.
