Help - want to delete a file

Help guys!!!

I dl'd a music file off limewire. typical looking track and looks like any other file in my music folder. It does not open or play. However, it will not let me delete or move to the recycle bin. I cant cut and paste it either. I restarted in safe mode and the same thing. I want it gone. Can anyone help me rid this sucka???!!! Thanks!

Try to rename it first, then reboot to Safe Mode, or rename it in Safe Mode and reboot. Sometimes this trick works.

thanks! i tried to rename it and it again is not an option. Only "open" and "add" in the drop down. Says it is an mp3 file. Does not open, does not play, does not delete. Is it malware??? any other thoughts?

By the way, have you try logging in as another user, then delete it with that user? Make sure this user is also an Administrator...
