Try doing it the same way you would delete a stubborn file. Open the prompt window to the desired location. Open task manager/processes & close explorer. Use the rename command in the prompt window. Go back to task manager/applications & restart explorer.

i couldn't rename the file after trying several different ways. after a coulpe of hours, i went back to try again and bam! i renamed it. guess it was one of those windows glitches or something.

anyway, thnx for your help and suggestions hipster.
