    It's probably because a program that is open is using it .

    Right click on each program that is showing on the bar next to the time & close ( or exit ) .
    Leave the speaker .

    To finish off , press , Ctrl / Alt / Delete together . Click each item , 1 at a time in the box showing & click End Task .
    Don't delete , Explorer & Systray .

    Reboot the computer in safe mode (press f8 while booting>select safemode from menu). Once you have deleted the file it may be a good idea to run a virus scan.
