Delete protected file in Vista

Problem: Unlocker, Starter, safe mode option, Microsoft Security etc can't delete protected virus file

As seen in picture, MSE says that it has removed the virus, however it is still there.

When booting Vista, press F8

and choose Repair Windows (top option)
and in Command Prompt it is possible to rename or delete a file which was identified as virus.
