    Just a thought:
    Could 'Shadow Copies' be holding some of those files 'hostage'?
    Good thinking,but doesnt apply,no shadow copies here, I do not use system restoration,Macrium takes care of that!
    That's your problem. Re-enable the Volume service to default. Depending on when/how you did things, you might have to re-enable the System Protection too, temporarily.

    Not sure which file it is referring to, but Safe Mode should run the command better I guess.

    Could be malware.

    I'd check the log and if you're satisfied that it is not after scanning the problem file or whatnot, use Unlocker on it then run the command.

    You should probably update to 8.1 too, if it's not malware and you don't need to install from scratch after Killdisk.

    Thanks for the input,I am pretty sure its no malware,Eset,Malwarebytes Pro,TDSSKiller and Adwcleaner back me up on this.Maybe I messed up too much with Group Policy and my issue has become kind of witchhunting.
