Try Unlocker 1.9.1 (freeware) and check whether any program is locking this file. If so, unlock with Unlocker and then try to delete the file.

Did you restart the computer? If so look in Program Preferences to select adding to Right click Context Menu.

Any program you install should be in your All Programs list, where you can open it and look through the various menus to understand what features it has that you want enabled.
