How long have you been stuck to that? If it is really taking long while, you can reboot the host, and try to remove the physical folder of the VM instead, using Admin account of the host.

1) cancel the task

2) if u r not able to cancel the task then restart the Vcenter service it will get cancelled, then u can try deleting again

what is physical folder ?

I mean the relevant path of the VM, within your host.
