    XP won't let me access file in any way

    I have a file that i cannot move, dlete, rename, play. It is a movie file with a weird long name and i cannot do anything. When i right click it, the normal menu does not appear....just the play, add to playlist, send to etc.
    I cannot rename it or delete it...any ideas?

    Boot into safe mode, use the Admin acct, and try to delete it from there.
