If this is Windows, make sure that Zope is not still running as a
service, make sure you have Administrator rights (which you would need
to klill the service), and then you should be able to delete it. I have
had one strange case where I could not delete a locked file but was able
to rename it, after which I could delete it (I do not think this was
Zope-related, though I cannot remember the details any more)!
