Can't delete invalid file

  1. I have a 0 KB file that I can't delete, rename or move. I've been able to delete invalid files in the past with PurgeIE's delinvFile program, but the program doesn't work on this one.

    Is there another program that might work? (of course, I've already tried right-click/delete in Windows XP).

    FileASSASSIN or MoveOnBoot. If those apps can't delete the file I need more info.

    What are you doing when the file first appeared?
    What's the full path of the file?
    Did it occur when your PC hanged and you have to reset?
