Go to downloads.com and download a piece of software called removeonreboot. This allows you to delete awkward files and is easy to use. Hope this helps

hi chaps,tried deleting in safe mode-nope, had a look at d/l.com-couldnt find 'removeonreboot'????

view is always in details,do you know of any other good apps to do the job

right click the file and click properties. Check the attributes, read only box and then click apply and ok. Do this again but uncheck the box and apply and ok. Should now delete.

in safe mode, right click the file and choose 'rename' and call it anything you want and then try to delete it maybe.
