This is typical something related to P2P applications and unwanted baddies you get together with filesharing. Please try the following :

Shut down your internet connection and close and uninstall ( via START CONTROL PANEL Software(Add or remove Programs) the P2P application(s) you are using.

If you have an antivirus program please run it on your computer and see what comes out and post back any result before undertaking any other measures.

Have you checked the folder's/file Properties?
Right click the folder, and select Properties.
Make sure it's not set to Read-only.
If it is, uncheck it, click Apply, and click OK.
Now try to delete it in safe mode

Start up in safe mode

If none of the above works, here are a couple of programs, you can try:

All in safe mode

Eraser
Unlocker
Delete DEoctor
