damn man you always got these early in the morning my computer fucked up threads lol, try doing a dir or a tree on the directory and see how the file name is listed in there and then use that in the del command

cd c:windows

[hit enter]

dir/p

[hit enter]

 

 

that should show a list of all the files and sub folders in that directory, press enter to move on to the next page of files and folders, try and see if you can find the file "HELLOKITTY.EXE-09347D61.pf" and/or something similar like "HELLO~12662436" and then use that file name in your del string

are you actually using dos, or the command prompt? if your using the comand prompt than all you really gotta do is this (assuming it starts off in this directory "C:Documents and SettingsOwner"

 

cd my documents

[enter]

del who cares.jpg

[enter]

 

 

i just tested it on my machine and it worked

I used DOS for the first time in some 6 odd years yesterday... gotta love that shit.

 

 

As for the guy asking... go into the directory your file's in.. find what it's called and

 

deletree whocares.jpg

 

simple.

if you cant do it with dos i highly recomend opening up the computer with a pair of plyers, the files in there! once you get the annoying hard case off the computer, the hard works over. At this point you should see a buntch of folders and files in them. Find the offending member and toss it. Then with the spare parts make a keen 'techie' looking modle/scuplture/hangie thing.
