The initdebug icon appeared after updating Speed fan. Cant delete icon from desk top.
I read a few posts on this.
Here is what OldGuy wrote:
"The initdebug file is an information file and was created by one of the applications on the computer. Since it uses msinfo32 to view it when you try and open it you will start msinfo32. Since the file is 0 bytes you can't read it and hence the error message. Just delete the file."

This may sound redundant, but how do I go about deleting this file?

My knowledge of computers is minimal.

Sometimes you can delete a stubborn file after booting into safe mode.
