Try renaming the file, then delete it, or restart then delete it.

Are you in the windows folder?(hope not)if not,right clic on your task bar,go to task manager\processes and end programs connected to that file.If this does not work,it could be adware>>go to M-soft and dl the beta anti-spyware and run it.

Whats the name of the file you are deleting? It might be in use, go to msconfig, disable all startup items except av/fw, reboot and try to delete.
