unable to delete files in windows XP Home edition

  1. When I try to delete a file I get an error code "cannot create file or directory" -- which is odd because I am trying to delete. Also, I can create files or directories whenever I wish to. Why do i get that error code? How do I get rid of it.

    try ms-dos mode

    see if you can boot to dos mode and go to the directory where the file resides and then try to delete it
