Probably just need to reboot to delete it, but if you wanna delete it without rebooting, there's a great program that can get past those "Access Denied" deletion problems. This program may be useful in future situations too.

Download Unlocker and install it. After installing it, Right-click on the item you want to delete and select Unlocker.

If something is locking it, it will display the program(s) in a list. Click on Unlock All at the bottom and then you should be able to delete it. :whistling:
