I use TWO methods.
1. The command line. With the wild cards if it's a .txt file and could copy all the txt files out and then this command.
This is not an offer to duplicate the web about command line use.
2. The other bootable CD method. Read about Ubuntu at http://forums.cnet.com/5208-6142_102-0.html?threadID=390323&tag=forums06;forum-threads
It only took a dozen posts to get down to work so I use that as an example for awhile. What you can do is try the delete in that bootable don't have to install CD.
I somehow created a file with a question mark.
I know it may sound very weird and stupid, but believe me it happened.
and I can't remember how I did it because it was like 2 years old file.
the bad thing about this problem is that windows-XP does not access this file in anyway possible, it doesn't delete, it doesn't copy, it doesn't move, it doesn't read, nothing.
Can anybody help me how to delete this file away?
