I'm trying to play a minecraft mod called pixelmon and it is not working. I'm trying to delete the pixelmon.zip folder from my .minecraft folder as that is causing problems. I cannot delete it because it is being used by Java(TM) SE Binary. Is there a way to stop Java so that I can delete this file? Any help is appreciated.
P.S. I am using Windows 7.

Booting into Safe Mode should allow you to kill it off.
