    Just turn off your sytem restore function of windows. For WinMe an instruction can be found here:

    The same for WinXP can be found here

    After disabling the restore function you can just delete the file and enable the system restore again.

    Other alternative would be to create a boot diskette with AVG (if it has such a feature) and boot your system with the disk. This would also allow to remove the file.
