    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 http://service1.symantec.com/SUPPORT/tsgeninfo.nsf/docid/2001111912274039

    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.
