As a matter of course, Windows prevents users from deleting, replacing, or moving a file when it is opened by another program. The best thing to do, therefore, to delete or alter protected files is to look for the program that is using the file in question and end the process.

However, rummaging through a mass of files could be arduous. Thanks to ThisIsMyFile, you have a tool that displays the locked and/or protected files and lets you modify or delete them.
