System.IO Exception - File being used, when using thumbnail images

Hi, I've created a page where a user can upload a zip file of images and display the list, the HTML list includes a thumbnail of the image eg: "<img src="thumb.aspx?p=blah">". To keep the thumbnail images seperate to the working directories for the unzipping/storage processes; A folder "temp" is used within the users directory. Whenever the thumb.aspx page is used, the image is copied from the "unzipped" directory to the "temp" directory, and the thumb is created using the "temp" directory as the source.

The problem is on irregular occasions after debugging a system.IO.exception is thrown, saying that the file is being used.

I'm disposing of objects, flushing and ending responses; but still seams to keep hold of the image files. If I do nothing for around 10 seconds lets go of the files and all is well.

Any Ideas?

Source for thumb.aspx

Private Sub Page_Load(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles MyBase.Load

Using Dot Net Nuke to maintain a site developed in VS.NET using C#
Hi,Does anyone know if there is a way to create a site using C# and Visual Studio.NET 2003, but then use Dot Net Nuke to allow non-technical users to add content to the site.  The current state of the site must be accessible in both VS.NET and DNN regardless of which application saved it last.  Also preferably I would like the language used to remain C# even when edited by the marketing staff, so that I can still maintain it myself using VS.NET.  Hope you understand what I mean. If this is not possible, I wonder if anyone knows what solution I am after.   Thanks in adv...
