You could set all FileInfo references to null. The GC will clean them up when it wants to, or you could force it with GC.Collect (although this isn't recommend).

A warning / piece of advice: FileInfo doesn't actually open the file, though it has methods that will create certain types of streams for you. What is most likely the problem is that you're not closing the streams elsewhere. Below is a piece of code that is recommend and best to use when possible:
Stream s = null;
try
{
  s = new FileStream(...);
  // Do something with the stream.
}
catch (Exception e) // Optional if error handling desired
{
  Trace.WriteLine(e.Message);
}
finally
{
  if (s != null) s.Close(); (// May want to flush the appropriate stream, too.
}
The finally block gets called no matter if the stream operations succeed or fail. Closing the stream frees the file system handle (FILE) to the file. Not closing the stream will most commonly lead to the problems you are getting.
