    I got, what seems to be, an incompatible font file after extracting the archive contents of the abandoware program "SimLife" on my desktop. The filename is "_ONTRES.FON" and I cant delete it no matter what I try.

    What I tried so far:

    *Simple delete using delete key - no response whatsoever
    *Shift + delete - no response whatsoever
    *Renaming the file - crushes explorer
    *Delete using FileAssassin - crushes the program
    *Delete using safe mode - no response whatsoever

    It is so ridiculous its funny :p

    Not working.. I don't think its an ownership/locked file problem. No message like "Access Denied" or something pops up..

    It's very weird
