    Restarting your Mac should allow you to delete it.

    Just delete the cache (entire folder) in:
    /private/var/folders/**/**/com.apple.dock.launchpad

    and restart the Finder

    Search in these folders for a folder called com.apple.dock.launchpad and delete it. After that restart the Finder.

    Didn't find that exact file but I found a com.apple.dock.launchpad, is this right? also found another that was a white page called com.apple.Launchservices.

    com.apple.dock.launchpad is correct (I was a little bit wrong with the name)...launchservices has nothing to do with the Launchpad
