In the Documents folder (Start, Documents ) there is a file, I dont know where it came from, that when I try to delete it a message pops up "cannot delete file:the filename you specified is invalid or too long. Specify a different filename"
How can I get rid of it ?

Right-click on taskbar, properties, advanced, clear document history should remove it.

restart the computer and start tapping the F5 key (If F5 does not work tap F8) and this will start in safe mode

now delete the offending file
