Windows 7: Windows admin account bug? Unable to delete file

Windows admin account bug? Unable to delete file

This is a strange bug I seen once before in windows 7.

I was downloading a video file off megaupload with firefox. Firefox makes 2 files for a download the file itself and a temp file (where all the data goes to till the download is done.) So I pick the dir where I want to place the file and I download it, but right when it finishes I get a error message saying it dose not have access to save the file. So there I get left with a 0kb file and a finished temp file. I can move the temp file and edit out the .part to use it, but the blank file can't be deleted. It clams I don't have administrator access to delete the file, but I only have a admin account setup/in use


What can I do to fix this? The last time it happened I deleted the temp file restarted and it was ok, but I need a better solution for this stupid error.
