comment Took Ownership of File/Folder, but Still Couldn't Alter It
I took ownership and changed the permissions. Interestingly enough, while trying the above comment's suggestion and finding no "Deny permissions", I gave the user "Full Control" permissions which seems to cause some havoc. It gave some sort of warning about file inconsistency or something or other. After clicking ok, it gave me the option to delete file (finally!) but after clicking "ok" it sent me back that I needed permissions from the user who is me.

Thanks for the recommendation. I downloaded Unlocker and tried deleting the file but it gave me the message that "it can't be deleted but try again at next reboot". So I agree but have yet to reboot.

comment TrustedInstaller Preventing Deletion of Files/Folders
Thank you for responding. Your program, SetACL, looks very ingenious but it appears that the permissions problems I have may just be because I'm trying to get rid of IE7 and WinDefender. Unsure if you can really delete these as I think they only can be turned off? I'm going to ask another question as addendum to this one because I came across something else interesting while trying to manage/change permissions. Thanks again.
