I cant delete a file and the file is causing defrag problems, I already tried UNLOCKER with no result, I moved the file to the Quarantine folder, originally it was a hidden file from IE5. The file is causing defragment problems, with the message "disk defragmenter cannot continue prescan because there is a corruption in file c:\ Quarratine\ZYGR0UM2.
The folder ZYGR0UM2 has 2 files inside, can't see the attributes. One of the files appears with 4 kb but properties shows 0, there is no extension and the name is a little square ( no name, just the symbol of a square), the other file's name is "mzÉ" with 0 kb, no extension. Can't delete the files. I don't know where the file came from. But it started in C:\WINDOWS\Local
>Settings\Temporary Internet Files\Content.IE5, when a tried to defrag, with the same defrag message. I was not able to find the file until I used killbox, but was not able to delete it.
What can I do? I already tried chsdsk /f, cleanning manager, etc. nothing worked.

Thanks for your help, in advance

Have you tried deleting it in Safe Mode?

Have you tried deleting it from the quarantine section of the program that quarantined it?
