i am running xp sp2; and recently a friend used my computer to get some videos offline. later i found that he had put these videos into my documents folder. i went to erase them and all but one erased. this one doesnt give me even an option to delete if i right click on it. i tried running delete dr on it, but got teh error of it having an invalid file name so i decided to try to rename the file. i go to do that and i notice there is not option for that either; the only thing i can get to from my right click is the media player options. i have tried a program called XL delete (free trial) , delete dr, and spybot s&d's secure shredder. any advice on how to get rid of this?
note: im going to try deleting it in safe mode when i am done posting this.
there was no option to rename it; all it had was the media player info (play open with... etc.) i decided that i could just remake the folder it was in, so i erased that instead. i did not get any errors or messages, the folder just erased and i cant find the file anymore.
