Can't delete a file from desktop

Hi, I use Windows XP SP 3 and I get the following message whenever I try to delete a file that I downloaded from the internet.  The item was a flag with a bmt (or something like that for an extension).  I changed it to jpg and now I get this message when I try to delete it.  "Can not read from source file or disc"

I have rebooted several times but I just can't get rid of it.

Have you tried dropping to a CMD prompt and trying to delete it from there?
