Dragged it into the bin but still won't delete. File used to contain some MP3s that I have deleted.

Try changing the name of the file and then delete it. Might work, Might not though.

I have tried renaming the file but won't allow it.

Did system search and it found the folder on my desktop.

Tried WOODCHIPs regedit but nothing came up after clicking Find.
