    A student of mine was copying some files onto my desktop so I could then burn them into a CD, and one of them was a rar file that contained some keygens :mamoru: but the file shows up as having a "lock" on it and now i cant delete it. It doesnt ask for a password or anything like that. Could i somehow go through the terminal and delete it manually like i would do on DOS or something?

    :noes::noes:

    or go under terminal and delete it from the command line
