Default File deletion.

Apparently when attempting to uninstall a game of mine, a huge file (1.6GB) somehow became "Corrupted and or unreadable", now I cannot delete it to hence, finish the uninstallation.

I'm pretty sure it's just being a ***** on purpose since I can copy it, move it, and rename it fine, but I can't get rid of it entirely.

Is there any way I can just wipe it off my hard drive without Shift + Delete, some software that'll do it for me?
