Try renaming the file, extension too. If it's being used by the system it shouldn't let you, if you can (rename it) you should be able to delete it now. If you can't rename, look in the task manager and see if you can identify the process that's a got it hooked and kill that process. good luck

Hey EP! All good with me, applying for Microsoft MVP right now, should have done this a while ago.
