Strange file permissions

I have a text file that was created during a VB6 program execution.  I later try to delete the file and it says I don't have permission.  So I try to change permissions and it says I'm not authorized.  So I run File Manager as Administrator and it still won't let me.

Any ideas?  I've dealt with this on Unix machines but not Windows.

The problem seems to have gone away.  I think another program must have been using the file, which in this program's case, won't happen during normal operation.

If you ever do bump into it again (and you most likely will) I highly recommend using that nifty freeware utility.
