you have to do a reboot. You can't work around this file corruption.

Open the folder and try to delete the individual files there until you come across the file that's causing it not to delete (there'll probably be at least one).  Then try to change the security properties on the file to give you access to delete.
Note you may have to take  ownership of the files (as an administrator) and give yourself full rights.
