Click Start->Run->CMD <Enter>
Click <Ctrl> + <Shift> + <Esc> to open Task Manager
Kill the Explorer process from the Processes tab

Now from the left-open command prompt, type
del %systemroo%\system32\normaliz.dll

Type
Start explorer <Enter>
to reopen explorer

You can boot with the XP cd to the repair console, from here you can delete any file that you like.

Of course I am guessing that you attempted safe mode first?

go to command prompt,

cd window\system32\

type "Del normaliz.dll /f " without quotations.. the F is for force.

Thanks for your answers.
