i don't know whether this is the right topic cos i didnt know where it would fit in but i was hoping someone could help me

i was downloading some music and somehow a pornographic file has appeared in my documents. i have tried to delete it but when i right click it the only options are play, open with.., send, and add to windows media player playlist.
its not harming my computer because i ran my virus check and nothing came up but its just the fact it is there.
anyone got any ideas?

Hello,

Try using a handy little tool called unlocker, http://ccollomb.free.fr/unlocker/
should do the trick,
Regards,

Alan.

Have you tried deleting it, in Safe Mode?

Try using Eraser.

I use DelInvFile (Delete Ilvalid File), a free program that has never been unable to delete a file, in my experience.
