What message do you get when you try to delete it? Right-click on the file, if there is a check in Read Only, uncheck it. Also check to make sure ti's not being used, reboot the PC and try to delete it again.

I get{ Error deleting File or Folder ( access is denied. Make sure the disk is not full or write-protected and that the file is not currently in use)}. There is check in Read Only, it is not being used, PC was rebooted and deleting not succeeded

Tap F8 on startup, and boot into safe mode. Try to delete the file there.

Depending on what you downloaded, and from where, you may have picked up some malware. Try running through the malware guide in my signature.
