Your best option is to contact program's vendor.

It may be that a particular program is using the file.

Try to close any instance of the program through task manager and try again.

If you want to see which processes are using the file install Unlocker

Right click on C:/Windows/System32/mfc71.dll and click on "Unlocker"

It will come up with a new window to show processes using that file.
