Hello ilovesd90macs and welcome,
If Explorer crashes and you can't get to the start menu you can press CTRL+ALT+DEL this will bring up the Task Manager click New Task and type explorer.exe this will restart explorer.
To delete the file, firstly, what is the file? is it a system file? Or is it a user created file?
If you want to delete the file using command prompt. use the dir command to list all the directories in the location the prompt is pointing to. Then the cd command to change directory i.e cd Documents and settings. then the del command. i.e del random file.
If the file refuses to go quietly then you can use Unlocker this tool will unlock the file from the process that is using the file and allow it to be deleted.

What file are you trying to delete? Have you tried starting in safe mode? Or logging in using a different account?
