    dear future sheped, is it a media file? then you shouldn't worry about virus. have you tried to delete it after reboot? the probable cause of this problem could be a lockup between all those media players. thats why that file was hard to delete. if you're still unable to delete it after reboot then please give us the name and path of that file. by the way using a file sharing program often invites trouble.

    THANK GOD 4 positive energy... :D

    finally my bane is uprooted and "outta ere" i followed a link from a fine gentlemen named
    Jooske :D

    and heaven opened its gates...thanks.

    i followed these instructions.


    Put DelLater in the root, C:, for easy path access.
    All you have to do is get a command prompt at C:\ > and type in dellater.exe<space>Driveletter\Folderpath\fullfilenamewithextension, and hit Enter, to get the popup confirmation.
    Then reboot.
