I downloaded a mpeg file to my desktop. I cannot open it with any programme and cannot delete it.
If I right click the file it only displays send to options and open with... (no properties option).
It won't let me put it into any other file or move it anywhere!
I am wondering that it might be a Trojan or other nasty file.
Is there any freeware programme I can download to get rid of this bug?

Thanks in advance

Restart the computer, tap f8, choose safe mode to start and try deleting it in safe mode.

Have you done your standard "Virus Scans" yet?

I would suggest that you do these scans (if not done already). Then reboot your system into "Safe Mode" (while your computer is booting, keep tapping F8, until you get a list of options. From these options, select "Safe Mode" and press enter)

Now try to delete the file again
