Default Can't delete folder?

Today my virus scanner NOD32 just picked up a trojan and is located in my program for watching dvd which is cyberlink power DVD , and my anti virus said it can be deleted and since i dont even use the program powerDVD at all i decide just to uninstall it from control panel.
When i do uninstall the infected file is still there and cant be deleted it keeps coming up with this message when i try to delete it "Cannot delete PDVDServ.exe:Access is denied. Make sure the disk is not full or write-protected"
Can someone tell me how to delete the file?

I would not classify that as a virus

bring up task manager, end task explorer.exe then in the task manager click on file, new task and open command prompt (cmd). navigate to the folder which has this file and then try to delete it via the command windows.. see if that helps...

else you could also try in safe mode too.

Cyberlink PowerDVD isn't a virus, if it were, it wouldn't be distributed with new computers.
