Windows 7: Please help, I cannot delete an infected file.

12 Jun 2017   #1

W7 Prof 64 bit
Please help, I cannot delete an infected file.

I have a Winrar file that is supposed to contain an editor for a game called S.T.A.L.K.E.R. and it has a Malware in it. When scanning it with Avira, Avira offers to Clean it, but a re-scan of the file shows the Malware again, so I am not sure it is really Clean.

I tried changing the permissions on the file, and the attributes, but I still cannot delete it.
The program Unlocker doesn't help either.

The Malware name is 'W32/Induc.ienb'.

I would like to kill/delete this file.

Would someone please help me with this problem?
