Hey there IshmaelVignsten, since Chooman is not on-line. Maybe I can be of assistance.

Restart your computer and as soon as it starts booting up again continuously tap F8. A menu should come up where you will be given the option to enter Safe Mode.

Let me know if you managed to delete the file. Cool :whistling:
