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

try to delete it from the registry. be carful to delete the same file name you want after finding it in the registry. start> run > regedit
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.
