Need Help Please. Can't delete file.

I just bought a new laptop and am trying to use my speakers with it. The speakers run the a Scarlet 2i2 USB interface that comes with a driver disk to install. I installed the drivers but it still didn't work because they are out of date. So i went to the website to download the proper one but as it installs it says

C:\Windows\system32\ffusbaudio_coinst.dll
An error occurred when trying to rename a file in the destination
directory:
MoveFile failed; Code183
Cannot create a file when that file already exists

I tried going into the sytems32 folder and deleting it but it literally won't let me! I am on the administrator account and I cant change ownership of the file either, it just won't let me!!! Please if anyone can help me that would be amazing, this is really getting annoying.

  1. You'll need to see what is using that file before you can delete it. Here are three options:

    1- Look at Unlocker: http://www.emptyloop.com/unlocker/
    or
    2- Process Explorer: http://technet.microsoft.com/en-ca/sysinternals/bb896653.aspx
    or
    3- Restart your computer in Safe Mode; This stops all programs and only lets the actual Windows OS run.
  2. Best answer
    Try starting windows in safe mode.
    You may be able to delete the file, or even successfully install the driver.
