This might sound stupid, but have you tried rebooting? I don't know if it does this in XP, but I know NT does this. If you accessed the folder before trying to delete it, it won't allow you to delete it, because NT seems to believe your still using something in it. A reboot usually fixes that.

If you have Norton Avti-Virus, add the file to the quarintine and then delete it from the quarintine window. Even if the file is not a virus, this process will still delete any stubborn file
