    likely a NTFS permission issue --- which OS version are you using AND did you try the delete from an ADMIN login?

    get file assassin from this site.

    then under the file assassins method of file processing there should be the top three already checked, also check the bottom of the top four buttons the one you should check is called "delete file" if you do this and it still doesnt work then check the "delete on windows reboot functions. which stops the process from running before it loads on startup.

    hope this helps :)
    good luck...
