If you attempt to delete a file or a folder and get an error message, up pops unlocker for you.

Are you doing this from within Windows? If so, Unlocker should kick in at the first sign of an access denied type error message.

From
Code:
http://www.techspot.com/downloads/1029-unlocker.html
1.8.0
- New feature: Unlocker Assistant. Unlocker Assistant stays in your system tray bar and automatically launches Unlocker if you are trying to delete/rename/move a file that is locked. So for those who use Unlocker Assistant, no need to right click files or folders anymore. This feature can be deactivated during the install.

I had a problem with that 'Prevx' program. It's an anti-malware.
It's a pain in the bum, when you want to uninstall it connects to it's website, but still pops up on start-up.

I just stopped it starting from 'Startup Monitor' which was in the download section, a brilliant little app (don't know if it is still there though.)

You could try a live cd like "linux mint" go into the hdd and delete the files that need to be deleted and you could also download the latest "hirens boot CD" burn it to disk restart pc and then boot up hirens run the virus scanners it has on there and delete any found threats then reboot,
Good luck,
Yotta.
