Problem with deleting a writeprotected file

I have problems with deleting a write protected file in Windows XP Home SP2.

I get an error message saying "The file is in use by another application or user" And when I right click the folder I can see that its write protected. I can't remove the protection and I don't know what program that supposedly uses this file. I've virus scanned the file. And there is no virus to find.

Solved the problem...apparently the file was in use by a program. I had no idea that this program could use that particular file, but there you go...
