Exclamation Cant delete this file!!! HELP!!

Hey guys, i downloaded a "movie" and extracted to my Desktop. And it was corrupted (the size is 0 Bytes), so I m trying to delete it. I just cant.. I tried win7, xp, nothing... this is the error message when i try to delete and/or rename it



I tried to delete it from MS DOS, but still cant.



Ok, then, i extracted the same file again into TRY folder, and now i cant delete that folder again... HELP!!! is it a virus? i scanned it using Avast and it didnt detect. There's one thing that is odd though, the file name has ":" inside it, do you guys think it's the reason?

unfortunately thats what happens when your a porn addict.

- try ctrl+alt+delete and see if there are any weird processes.
- end them and pray they dont automatically pop up.
- try deleting files

option 2

- goto run, type 'msconfig'
- then uncheck any processes or applications that you dont recognize
- restart
- attempt deleting files

If its not a bad virus, this may work.

I used this program once, UNLOCKER 1.8.7 BY CEDRICK 'NITCH' COLLOMB.

I know hijackthis also has a delete on reboot option, if you have the program.
