    Cannot delete (Filename): Access is denied.
    Make sure the file is not full or write-protected and that the file is not currently in use.

    The file is none of these things and will not delete normally, under safe mode, when I end explorer and attempt to delete it in DOS, while the folder is shared or unshared. I cannot take ownership of the file because I cannot find that option in the properties menu.

    Where is the location of file ? where is it located on your file system.

    Are you trying to delete a file which belongs to any other user ?
    do you have complete administrator rights to your system.

    I am the administator and have access to the file. There are no other accounts on this
    computer.

    Restart your system in safemode and then delete it.
