I have the same file (Perflib_Perfdata), and in it, there is a file called "Change". I can delete all the other files, but not this one. I too, have tried every program to kill it, but it denies me access because some one or someother program is using it. I also have a file in the C:\Sysytem\Volume Information Restore folder. It duplicates and modifies itself every few hours. It consists of a long string of numbers. Scary. I think it is my Malware virus that I have control over at the moment, but can't find anybody to help me kill it for good.
I don't feel that the tip Mike gave you, was of any value. You ( I think ), want to know if there is a way to delete a file that you can't stop from running. Or, Is there some way to override the access denied, so you can stop it and then delete it? I have been asking the same thing evrywhere, but get no answers. There has to be some way to do it. Just need the right person to come along.
Just my thoughts,

If you have an abormal shutdown, these files can become orphaned, and accumulate on your computer.
Under some yet to be determined circumstances, these files can become orphaned during normal operation.
The best way to remove these files is to add a command in a logon script:
del /q %SystemRoot%\System32\Perflib_Perfdata*.dat

to delete any files that are "HIDDEN" or "DELETE PROOF" from such said folders u must boot in to "SAFE" mode
Restart computer and before it boots up into the windows. hold down either: backspace, Delete, or F10 or F8 (** see it depends what computer/ windows OS ure running)
then once safe mode is up go into C:/Windows/temp and delete everything in there. Then you can also check for viruses while in safe mode, but then get rid of that and then reboot sys.
