Old DNS entry vcannot be changed or removed

I have an old DNS entry for an old pc that has since long gone, the IP is assigned to something else and works fine, However I still see the old PC showing up as entry.

If I try to remove it I get the access denied error, the DNSadmin has full rights, I'm logged into the DNS server as administrator so I'm a little confused as to why this is happening.

I'm guessing that the scavenging is passing this entry? -  server is 2008 r2

It wasn't checked, Doh!  however, when I check it and apply, I get "The record cannot be updated. Access was denied"
Check the properties of the record > security tab.  See if there's anything odd there.  You could try under the advanced tab to make yourself the owner and then give full permissions.
