Cant delete file

#1
There is a file on my computer i can not delete. I tried deleted it before, but now if i search for it, and when i delete it from the search menu it says i need to verify the files location. But when i go to the files location its not in there. I have tried many programs to delete it, but it never dose, any help would be great.

Do you know which program the file was in originally? What is the name of the file.
One way which I have tried in the past, both with Vista and XP, is to do an exact match search in the registry and delete all instances. But if the file has a name common to other programs, that could, of course, lead to a disaster.
