    Your HJT log is clean.

    Try Using THIS utility to delete the file.

    1. Please download The Avenger by Swandog46 from HERE. Save it to your Desktop and extract it.

    2. Download the attached avengerscript.txt and save it to your desktop

    Note: the above code was created specifically for this user. If you are not this user, do NOT follow these directions as they could damage the workings of your system.

    3. Now, start The Avenger program by double clicking on its icon on your desktop.

    Under "Script file to execute" choose "Load script from file".
    Now click on the folder icon which will open a new window titled "open Script File"
    navigate to the file you have just downloaded, click on it and press open
    Now click on the Green Light to begin execution of the script
    Answer "Yes" twice when prompted.

    4. The Avenger will automatically do the following:

    It will Restart your computer. ( In cases where the code to execute contains "Drivers to Unload", The Avenger will actually restart your system twice.)
    On reboot, it will briefly open a black command window on your desktop, this is normal.
    After the restart, it creates a log file that should open with the results of Avenger’s actions. This log file will be located at C:\avenger.txt
    The Avenger will also have backed up all the files, etc., that you asked it to delete, and will have zipped them and moved the zip archives to C:\avenger\backup.zip.

    5. Please copy/paste the content of c:\avenger.txt into your reply.

    Regards Howard :)

    I have made a slight change to the Avenger script. See if that helps.

    Lol, ok I found the problem and fixed it, it wasn't a .rar file, it was an .ISO
    WinRAR archive file. Lol I'm not even going to ask what happened there but its gone now, Thanks for your help =D

    Ah, I see lol.

    The best thing to do is to run Winra and click options/settings/integration and uncheck the ISO check box and click ok, close Winra. Now, .iso files won`t look like .rar files.

    Glad you got it sorted.

    Regards Howard :)
