The otehr day i downloaded a video from a friend. He accidently sent me the file for Ipads, one we realised the error he sent me the right file. Now when ever I try and delete the wrong file I cant. When I open the folder it is in I get the message "windows exploere has stopped working" then "windows exploere is restarting." I have tried doing it in safe mode some thing. I have scanned it with every malwear, and antiviruse i can says it clean. I dont care if I cant delete the file but I need to acess other files in the folder it is in. Any help will be awesome!

Try MoveOnBoot. This program lets you tag files and/or folders to be deleted very early during the next reboot, before [hopefully] any other program can put hooks in it.

Maybe you better have one of our Malware Removal experts have a look to make sure you are not infected with something. See our Malware and Spyware Cleaning Guide for instructions.
