Ever had such an annoying message given by Windows?
Cannot delete Folder: It is being used by another person or program.
Close any programs that might be using the file and try again.
It has many other flavors:

Cannot delete file: Access is denied
There has been a sharing violation.
The source or destination file may be in use.
The file is in use by another program or user.
Make sure the disk is not full or write-protected and that the file is not currently in use.
Unlocker is the solution!

if you are still unable to delete temp files in your windows using unlocker... you can try running disk cleanup..

1. Go to Start
2. Run, type cleanmgr, press enter.
3. Select drive c:
4. Check the following:
Temporary Internet Files
Temporary Files
Recycle Bin

5. Click OK

Boom... that's it...
I hope this works....

You can save your self a lot of frustration prior to downloading a software solution.

Often Windows only needs a bit of discombobulation, so try this trick. On c:\ make a nonsense folder, like "The tomb."

Take the offending file and transfer [drag] it to this new folder...ta da...gone from its previous position. As long as Windows still thinks it is on the drive somewhere it will leave it alone.

Let all the movable files accumulate there and then delete the bunch following the next reboot.
