Access denied for permission change

Specs: Windows Vista Home Basic
I've been fighting a virus. I think I've got most of it, but there are two files that I need to get rid of. I can't delete them, it says I don't have permission, but even as administrator, I cannot change the permissions. Is there a way to get the permissions changed anyway?

Sorry it's taken me so long to get back to you. Unfortunately,
my computer hasn't been a priority.
The problem I'm having is that I can change security and
ownership of a file, but can't delete it. I have administrative
privileges, I've become the owner of the files and I have full
control as administrator and with my own account, but it still
won't let me delete. How can I have full control over a file, but
not have the right to delete it? Yes, before you ask, the
delete right is checked in the security settings. At this point,
all I need to do is get rid of them. Is there a program that
deletes files regardless of the permissions?

I think I've got it. It blocked AVG, Kaspersky, and spybot. Avast
took care of the virus and that let me fix the permissions
