On one of my Windows 2003 servers there is a file located on the root called "Program". I can delete the file but when i restart it comes back. I have checked the file with several virus scanners and confirmed it is nothing of the sort. This server is running Virtual Iron and in order for it to start i have to manually delete the file. It is getting very annoying.

Hi,

Try using Process Monitor (Procmon) an app provided by microsoft...
http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/sysinternals/bb896645.aspx 

This will tell you exactly what process is making the file and what is initiating it.

You could go for the messy approach and create a .bat file to launch virtual iron after it firstly deletes the file.

Found the problem to be the backup folder location link that Virtual Iron was using. For some reason it was not parsing the full path name.
