What type of file is it? Where did you download it from?

If it is not a big file download it again, when asked 'file already exist' choose overwrite.

Try a System Restore. Right-click on "Computer", choose Properties, Click "System Protection", then click the System Restore button.

Try downloading and usng a program called Unlocker, its free. I have used it for a few years and I have never had a file or folder that I could not delete with it. Sometimes it is necessary to reboot in order for Unlocker to delete the file or folder, but it always deletes it in the end.

Here's the link to it:
