Default How to force delete a file?

I have a file on my computer that I want to get rid of. The computer keeps acting like it's open in another program. This is bullshit, it's not. How do I bypass this protocol and delete it manually?

It was from a folder that I downloaded. I moved some stuff from the folder to out of it, and then deleted the folder and every file except this one.

Have you tried opening a DOS box and deleting it using the command line?

If you don't find any other way, boot into another operating system like Linux and delete its there.

I know this sounds stupid, but why not try restarting the computer? That way, all processes that might be using the file would be stopped.

be this way...
