    Unable to delete file!


    Hi
    I'm trying to delete file since I'm not using it but the windows give me error message. Please look at my screen capture that I attach. Sorry for the bad English. I hope you all understand what I am trying to say.

    You may also, in an administrator command prompt, want to run:
