It's probably because it is in use or you don't have permission (not the owner).

I also have Linux on my computer, so when this kind of thing happens, I delete it under Linux.
You should have a Linux boot able USB flash disk (2G). You have a complete OS on a USB flash disk. Very helpful in emergency.
