Can not select locked file


Recommended Posts

I accidentally destroyed the permissions of a file on my device, but when I tried to use FileASSASSIN to delete it, it told me I couldn't even select the file.

It's no advanced rootkit (not malware at all) but nothing I do can delete it. It's just a 0 byte file.

This file is a nightmare for me, as it breaks random apps + my VMs. If I can't delete it from inside Windows, is it possible to boot to a Linux distro and delete it from there? I'v got the Ubuntu iso so it's possible.

FRST log: FRST.txtAddition.txt

Not sure if this is just an issue with my computer or with FileASSASSIN, or if this isn't even what it is supposed to do.

By the way, is this even the right area? I noticed that after I posted it
