I hate those files! Its like there but not there...hmmm boot into safe mode with command prompt and try deleting in that way..so you would of course have to manually browser to it...

cd c:\documents and settings\user\desktop
del cazu6p7j

answer yes to delete.

Can you rename it? Move it? Change any attributes? I have had files I couldn't delete, but if I named them something else I could.

If your equation requires either a complex combination of variables to get the desired result OR you can't seem to get the result regardless of the variables....it ain't your variables, it's your constant.
