Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

You don’t want to delete this file. It is a critical system file. It will always be locked when windows is running. What are you needing to do?

    Windows system files (or any other OS system files) can not be deleted while that system is running because they are protected and are a vital part of system (esspecialy that one which is a part of Windows registry). You can delete those files if pc is booted by another operating system which is capable of reading/writing file system of drive where particular file is located. For instance some flavour of Linux or some utitity CDs like Ulitamte Boot CD or similar. I hope this helps!

    If you are not deliting it manually anymore, then you should try to delete it with this tool named "unlocker" You can download it here: http://ccollomb.free.fr/unlocker/ If you want more help regarding software problems, you can visit here: www.iyogi.net
