To delete that file that is always in use, I suggest that you use the
following trick.

CD to your directory.

Use: DIR /X /A   to see the SHORT FILE NAMES of the files and directories


RMDIR [/Q] [drive:]path
RD [/Q] [drive:]path

   /S      Removes all directories and files in the specified directory
           in addition to the directory itself.  Used to remove a directory

   /Q      Quiet mode, do not ask if ok to remove a directory tree with /S


RMDIR /Q c:\progra~1\McAfee~1
RD /Q c:\progra~1\McAfee~1
