Just close all open files, delete the recently accessed files list click uninstall from the appwiz.cpl & make sure that the program is all closed from the Task Manager Process tab. It will work.

The message you encounter is based on the fact, like it says, that the file is currently in use and can not be accessed by another program. Close all the applications and try to delete the file again. It it's a system file you will need Administrator permissions.
