Windows 7: Need Help With Deleting...

Need Help With Deleting...

Hi guys!

How are we? I'm having a problem with a file that I cannot delete that was from a previously uninstalled software. I don't know if this is actually in the right section but this was the closest section I found from this issue. Whenever I try to delete it, it gives me the following: "Error 0x8010004: Disallow the fast IO path for this operation"

I've tried deleting it via command prompt but whenever I put in the name of the file to delete it does nothing, and the file is not deleted.

Can someone please tell me what to do to get rid of this file, and exactly what to put in Command Prompt just in case I'm doing something wrong? Thanks for the help!
