Verify your path

$file = @ProgramFilesDir & "\google\GoogleToolbar1.dll"
If FileExists($file) Then
;FileDelete($file)
    MsgBox(0, "It is there", $file)
EndIf

Can you do a move?

$file = @ProgramFilesDir & "\google\GoogleToolbar1.dll"
$file2 = @ProgramFilesDir & "\google\GoogleToolbar1_new.dll"
If FileExists($file) Then
    FileMove($file,$file2)
EndIf

If the file is being used, then you won't be able to delete it that way.

I have never had this problem before.

Things I would try:

Can you FileDelete the new file (after the move)

Have you tried FileRecycle?

maybe it's a registered dll:

RunWait("regsvr32 /u /s " & Chr(34) & $file & Chr(34))

or you have to kill iexplore.exe or rundll32.exe

Have you considered uninstalling the Google Toolbar software, rather than just deleting one of the components? This way you get to clean up the registry and related files properly, rather than make your system unstable.

(You may find that file is set to be memory resident on startup)
