Try to change the folder name?
Try to rename and delete the file using command prompt?
It's also possible that the real file name could be masked, to check this:
From a command prompt, do a "dir /x" and see if it reports a different name (one with a ~) to try.

What happens when you try to delete it? I had this problem cos I had started to download a file off of a network and the program I use to download files was 'keeping a watch' on it, in case I wanted to resume the download at a later time. Yet I was unaware of this for a while, and get being told by windows that the file was in use or some one was using it etc etc.

Or can you physically not right click and select delete?
