GIMP: can't delete gtkrc - please help


I was trying to delete the entire portableGIMP directory from my USB drive and couldn't and was wondering if someone can advise on what I should do? I was able to delete all except 1 file called gtkrc and keeps telling me access denied. I was able to rename and copy the file, but unable to delete and change the attribute. Thanks for any assistance.

Something has a "lock" on that file in Windows (explorer.exe is often the culprit). A reboot will fix it.

Sometimes, the impossible can become possible, if you're awesome!
