get rid of STDOLE2 file

#1
I know this is an important file that runs in various programs. After I uninstalled an ISP that used 3rd party marketing advertisers on my PC ("Value Click") it left behind the STDOLE2 file. How can I get rid of this particular STDOLE2 file out of the ISP folder.. I've tried to rename it but it won't let me. I also tried to move it out of C: drive and onto the desktop and it wouldn't let me move it,

Try deleting it this way>

Close all open applications.
Open a command prompt and navigate to the directory with the offending files.
Then open the Task Manager and click on the Processes tab. select "explorer.exe" under Image Name. Click "End Process".
That will leave you with only the command prompt and the task manager running.
Now at the Command Prompt, its time to delete the file(s). Using the DEL command. Example c:>\movies\DEL movie.avi
Now the files are deleted, go to the task manager and click on the Applications tab. Click the "New Task" button. in the dialog, type explorer.exe and click OK.


For folders the command is 'rd'.
