Sorry, but you should have negotiated a 'pay for delete' agreement with the company before the final payment.  As it is, this account is part of your credit history and will remain for 7 years.

As already said, you should have attempted a "pay for delete" prior to paying the account. Since you have already paid it, the only options that you have is to send a "goodwill letter" to the company asking them to delete the account or disputing the account if it contains any incorrect information and then hope that the entire account would be deleted rather than the incorrect information updated. Do some googling and reading on how to write a "goodwill letter".
