I know this question is asked but there is no solution for me. I tried unlocker, fileassassin, lockhunter and commnd prompt to delete file but it didn't work.

Delete the folder that contains the file, with rmdir /q /s. If that doesn't work, try rm using cygwin. – user3463 Jul 30 '12 at 6:04

Boot your system with a Linux live CD then you should be able to delete it.

If you don't have a CD burner you can try using a flash drive with YUMI.
