Found this page that explains it fairly well. Just when you open the command prompt, use this method:

Start> In search box type cmd> Right click on cmd.exe in results above and choose Run as administrator.

The rest of the instructions on this link should be clear. But you want to do as Bill says:

Open a command prompt and navigate to the desktop directory (C:\users\<username>\desktop), then type dir. Then use the del command to delete the files, using the exact name that they are displayed with via the dir command.

Delete A File That Is Seemingly "Undeletable"

Do you mean you dont know how to change directories etc. in dos? If yes, open the cmd prompt and tell us what you see there (post a snipshot). Will guide you from there.

Try with the help of this tutorial

You can also download and try unlocker.

Then, as suggested by Jacee, try this one

In the Command Prompt window, navigate to the directory that contains the file to be deleted.
At the command prompt type DEL <filename> where <filename> is the file to be deleted.

OK, saw that upload. Try taking ownership of the file on the desktop, if possible. Heres how.

Take Ownership Shortcut

Then try deleting the file.

As for opening the cmd window, just press SHIFT key and hold it down, while right clicking on a blank area on the desktop, then click on "Open command prompt here". That'll open the desktop directory in the cmd window. After that type dir, and tell us what it says.
