The way to delete stubborn files is to turn off UAC. Start, then type in window 'uac'. You should get the one entry about changing the UAC setting. Move the slider all the way down. Restart, and delete away. Depending on your other habits, you might want to set UAC back up, and restart again.

Microsoft is far too stupid to implement a permissions/ownership method correctly. A binary switch is the limit.
