If it's a straight delete of a file and nothing more sinister, try Dr. Delete from here click here

Boot your computer into safe mode [ press F8 key at startup ] and you should be able to delete it.
What operating system are you using?.

Or install EnditAll which will obligingly "Kill" the file. then you can delete it.

disconnect from the internet and delete the file, it seems it is trying to access it, and therefore you cannot delete it. TT
