I had a similar problem. There was a file on my desktop which had 0 in size and could not be deleted nor moved. Not even with command promnt. I even did 2 full virus scans but nothing.
What fixed it was actually quite simple:
I downloaded that file again. It didn't ask me to overwrite or change the fail name, even though there was already one with the same name on the desktop. So I had 2 files with the same name, one with size and the bugged one.[ there was no (1) behind the filename either]
So I moved the new downloaded file into my documents and then back to desktop. When I moved it back to desktop, the 2 files merged whitout any dialog box. After that I was able to delete it.

I would download process explorer to see if there has been anything running in the background preventing you from deleting the said file. What kind of file is it? text file? folder?
Check the download link and see if there is something in the background process running and kill it, then repeat the process of trying to delete the file.
Hope that helps.
