Its a zero byte file usually from an aborted download. It should disappear next re-boot

Im guessing thats, not the answer because iv had this problem with that file for about 3 months now and iv probably rebooted at least 100 times in that 3 months.

Hi thecompgame.

Have you tried the excellent Unlocker? Adds itself to your context menu.

Would have been the first suggestion if I knew.
I always carry a puppy disc for the same situations.

The first 6 months I first went x64 there was no compatible unlocker. Very nearly threw me back to 32bit. But good you got your problem sorted.
