Why am I being asked for permission to delete even after taking ownership?

I cannot delete a music file from my desktop, it was a file i began to download through Azureus that failed. Whenever I try and delete it i'm told that I need permission.
I've downloaded the 'Take Ownership' program recommended by Geek but even after using this on the file i'm still being told i need permission, please advise.

Thankyou

Well, you could try to use unlocker for all deleting issues:

Are you sure that some instance of that file or program isn't being used? Make sure no Azureus program thing isn't running. Go to task Manager , processes, and see if you can find some kind of annoying instance which could not be allowing you to delete the program.

Also i have a problem with azureus in vista. Sometimes ill click on the link for it to start up and it wont. But ill look into the process manager and intill be running in memory. So i know that its running but it never shows up on the desktop to show its running. Also i have to reboot to get the problem to go away, but when i reboot, it just hangs and sometimes i have to hold down the power buttton to restart. And when i end up rebooting i get a blank screen for about 20 sec before the vista logo and the login screen comes present. Im assuming all of this has to do with azureus.

The blank screen is present because Windows didn't close normally.

I don't use Azureus. What happens when you kill the process in TaskMan?
Try to keep your questions on topic, m'kay?

I'm guessing your system hasn't recovered from all of the incoming connections to Azureus, which is why shutting down hangs, because the networking drivers are going berserk.

Probably would be good to make a new topic for a new question... people tend to open topics because of the title, so you'll likely get more helpful feedback that way.
