    Did you try deleting it via MS-DOS (command prompt)

    use the cd command to change to that directory and then type in del filename.mp3

    Sometimes windows arbitrarily decides to deny permissions to everyone on a certain file or two. I had it happen on a couple of software packages from the 2 isp's I use once - here's how I fixed it:

    First - I full-on system scanned for virii, spyware, the works to make sure it was a windows screwup and not something worse. I did this in safe mode.

    Second - I used the methods described in this thread to gain 'system rights' and wipe out the offending programs for reinstall under my normal account.

    Hope that helped!
