Re: 'nother computer question

Scan it for a virus, or go into safe mode and delete it there

Re: 'nother computer question

Depends on what the file is, sometimes some of the files that you download are being used by another program and it wont allow you to access it.
That said, make sure that it is a file you can delete.
A program may not work properly after you force a delete.

Is it something in your temp folder?

You can go into SafeMode, or just use task mgr to shut down everything you are not using. By doing this one at a time, you may isolate the file that is linked to the file you want to delete. Then you can decide if you really should get rid of it.
