Welcome to the Ranch ! Next time, don't forget to UseCodeTags to make your source more readable. I've added them for you.

Yes, welcome to the Java Ranch. It would help us to help you if you can cut your code down to a much smaller size. For a file opening error, can you get it down to ten lines or so of real code directly relating to the problem?

If a file cannot be deleted it means it is still in use. That can be by an external program, or you may have forgotten to close a Reader, Writer, InputStream or OutputStream for the file.

You can check which process still holds locks on the file using the free tool Process Explorer. Start it up, select Find -> Find Handle or DLL..., type in the name of your file and press Search. You then get a full list of all processes that have a lock on any file that matches your search criteria. If this list is empty after you close the JVM then the problem must be in a remaining open reader, writer or stream.
 
Don't get me started about those stupid light bulbs.
