In the Command Prompt window, use the Dir command with the /x parameter to
show you the 8.3 filename. Then delete that filename.
If it doesn't work, please post back exactly what you did and exactly
(verbatim) any error message or other response that appeared. Also, please
tell us the exact name of the problem file, including the extension - and
the 8.3 filename. Also, what does the dir /a command tell you?
