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.

This program will delete any files that are giving you trouble... Just be careful to not delete any core system files.

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.
