    Give Unlocker a go:

    http://ccollomb.free.fr/unlocker/

    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
    It will unlock any process that might be accessing or stopping you from deleting the file.

    It's not an NTFS file system, is it? I don't know of
    any Linux versions that will write to NTFS w/o running
    something like Captive. You might try Killbox (runs
    from Windows). HTH.
