javascript file.Delete Invalid argument

Using javascript, I can save a file or rename it without any problems using Scripting.FileSystemObject activex object.
However, if the user selects to delete one of these same files, I get an "Invalid Argument" error. It uses the exact same path/filename as the save and rename methods.
I can't seem to find any more detail on the error on the object.
Any ideas here ?
function remove_file(fn) {
 var myObject;
  myObject = new ActiveXObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject");
  var f;
  f = myObject.GetFile(this._uploadDirectory + fn); <====causes the error
  f.Delete();
}
