Can't delete a file?

A user on a Windows system tried (!) to create a .RAR file on a RedHat 7.1 box using WinRAR.

Halfway through the process errored out, and now the file shows up via Windows explorer and via ls from the Linux console.

However, when I try deleting this file from Windows, it returns an error stating the "network name is not available".  When I try deleting it from a SSH session on the Linux box, even logged in as root, it can't even SEE the file.

How do I get rid of this file?!
