Hi Anthony
It might help if you tell us what it is called.
Also it is not normal practice for people to put their email address in the posting, and we will not email the answer to you - we will post it here for all to see so that if anyone has a similar question, the answer is available.

The file may not be deleting because it is being used by a program or the internet. Please tell us what the file is.

Try closing all programs EXCEPT explorer in task manager (CRTL_ALT_DELETE)

Then try deleting the file. But tell us what it is first.. it may be important.
