I always come across this error after working with any program or office utility. When I try to delete some files from a system it shows that system cannot delete the file because it is still running. I even check task manager and program does not appear there but still, same error appears

Since you have already tried running the task manager, so as per my knowledge you have two options left over. Either restart your system and delete the file or else run PC into safe mode to avoid such issues in future.
