    Which programs are you using?

    Its probably locked because its in use by the virus.

    Deleting a .dll can be risky. Confirm that its a virus first

    is it the free avg your using. if so delete it and try another free antivirus like avast or microsoft security essentials as not all are the same and sometimes miss or give of a false positive.

    Have you tried the free versions of Malwarebytes'Antimalware and HitmanPro?

    Can you upload the dll to VirusTotal or Jotti's Malware Scan to confirm it's not a false positive?

    dont forget to turn off your paid for avg before using any others as they will clash.

    also download Spybot Search & Destroy which is a great free bit of kit.

    http://www.file.net/process/mfplay.dll.html

    according to that, mfplay.dll is part of a Browser Helper Object--the reason it cannot be deleted is that it loads with IE--and since IE is so tightly integrated into Windows, it essentially loads with Windows.

    It is likely part of a toolbar. You can probably uninstall it by removing all toolbars in add/remove control panel applet.
