undeletable .avi file on my external harddrive

Hi I don't know if this is a virus or what , I've done a virus check on the drive and it came up with nothing but this file cannot be deleted. when you try it says file cannot be deleted as is being used by another person or program and it seems to slow the whole machine down when you try and do anything with it. But as soon as I unplug the external hard drive it goes back to normal so it something to do with that.

How do I get rid of this.

Worked a treat and very simple, which is a first lol as it usually takes me forever to understand what to do with computers.
