Hey guys and gals, i have this really annoying file in my library on windows 7 and i cant for the life of me seem to delete it. Ive tried the traditional ways of deleting it, dragging it to the the recycling bin, renaming it, copying and pasting it somewhere else and then trying, using software programs called "Unlcocker" and "CCleaner", and even going into the CMD prompt of my computer attempting to remove it from there; side note...(im not the best at using CMD commands and navigating through there, so maybe ive missed something). Ive also tried to run chkdisk command to see if it was some sort of registry error and Ive also tried safe boot mode to see if i could simply delete it that way. The problem with this file is that my computer cant seem to find it on my hard-drive, its like the file doesn't exists, its just a icon in my pictures document. There has got to be some sort of bullet proof sure fire way to get this stupid file off of my computer, so for all of you computer specialist and experts HELP ME OUT HERE!! thanks :thumbsup:
