I'm working on a 166hz 16MB, Win 95 for a friend. She had a virus (Rapptor) which Mcfee got rid of, however there were 3 files left in c:\windows\temp which would not delete. They have giberish names. I tried There in windows and Dos.
Scandisk (full)
Del command
deltree c:\windows\temp
Reinstall windows
Changing the attributes
All I get in dos is "access denied"
There still there and it beats me!

Have you checked the attributes of the file?
attrib -r -s -h *.*
if this doesn't help reboot to dos, and use norton diskdoctor or something similar.
Maybe you get some question about drive is locked.
goto another drive exmple a:
use
lock c:
or
unlock c:
i don't remeber witch one is was.
