Please give us more details...version of windows, etc
In either case, could you try running chkdsk -r from an xp recovery screen. Then try to delete the file again

You should also check the file attributes and make sure it's not marked as "read-only" and that you have the required permissions.

He stated he used a live cd, a live cd will ignore the file attributes

1. Your live CD is probably mouting the NTFS volume read-only
2. You cannot delete files by hacking the registry

Either use an XP cd and delete it via the recovery console, or use a recent Linux live CD which supports read/write NTFS access, like Knoppix.
