when this happends to me i boot in safe mode to delete it. You might want to try that :idea:

Usually this type of file can be deleted in the safe mode as previously posted, but if you still can't delete this file you may be infected. Have you scanned this file with your AV and spyware & adware programs?
If you need help getting into the safe mode let us know.

It's probably not a virus, but ya never know :)

On your desktop, you should have the folder that you created along with a .htm file of the same name.

You don't have the .htm currently open or used in a shortcut or anything do you?

I assume, you've already done the basic part of logging off and back on and trying to delete the file and folder, and/or rebooting and doing the same steps...
