If that doesn't work restart the computer in safe mode and try

also go-- run --msconfig and turn off all programs that start up
then once you start your computer with almost 0 programs runnign try
to delete it

it would help if you showed us the error message
does it say it is in use?

'fileshredder' does not work. the application itself 'stops responding'.
there are no error messages. after i press 'delete' or 'shift+delete',
it doesnt even show a confirmation dialogue box.
a "deleting" dialogue box appears, and the progress bar doesnt move
ahead.

Did you run System Restore?

Did you try to delete the file in Safe Mode?

Please include the message you are responding to.

Hi, akshatm.

In the Command Prompt window, use the Dir command with the /x parameter to
show you the 8.3 filename. Then delete that filename.

If it doesn't work, please post back exactly what you did and exactly
(verbatim) any error message or other response that appeared. Also, please
tell us the exact name of the problem file, including the extension - and
the 8.3 filename. Also, what does the dir /a command tell you?
