VISTA,,,,With UAC on vista it seems a little over the top for secirity, but right click that file you cant delete and just try once more, if not then make sure you are the admin of that vista machine.

XP,,,,Delete all Java and update click here . For macromedia remove old and install fresh click here .

I had this happen to me a few weeks ago and what i explained here seemd to have fied it for me.

Best of luck.........

Regarding the file,you can try to take ownership of the file and delete that way, click here booting into safemode may help get rid of the file also.

or try Unlocker click here
if the above fails try File Assassin click here (use with caution)

If this still fails you post back,and i can give further instructions.

Regarding Flashplayer

Use the Flashplayer uninstaller click here then run ccleaner click here use the cleaner function as well as the registry function.

Reboot the computer

Reinstall Flashplayer from click here
Note one version for IE and one for Firefox etc.
