I am unable to delete a file which was downloaded. I have tried Cyberscrub and Winoptimiser and they both state that the file cannot be found. The icon is there in the directory though????

Start your computer in safe mode and try again to delete it.

try removing it in dos. at the dos prompt type cd\ to put you in the root directory. Type dir filename/s. cd into the directory containing the file and type del filename.
