Default Corrupt??

I downloaded the Battle For Middle Earth 2 demo from EA's site. Bad idea. The dang exe. is corrupted or something. It's on my desktop and when I click on it my system stops responding. How the heck can I get rid of this crap? I tried dragging it into my trash bin, but it won't go. I can drag it elsewhere on the desktop, just not to the bin. What a bunch of bs. I download stuff from other places all the time, but EA always gives me trouble. aaarrggg.

Shift + Delete

If that does not work you can enter command prompt and try deleting it there.

One question. How do I delete in the command prompt?
