    can't get it to find the file... i think the main problem is that the filename is "minority report" and when you try to type a space in command.com it doesn't recognise it

    I remember I had a file I couldn't delete which I ended up opening in notepad or something and deleting all the text that came up.

    I know nothing about computers really but it worked for me
