Hi,

My problem is dealing with long filenames (surprise!). I don't know if this next statement is against the rules or not, but I was downloading a file with a P2P program and the filename ended up being too long. The download finished (according to my program) but when I actually went to the folder it said it was 0kb. So, I went to delete it and, as I'm sure many of you could guess I can't do anything with it.

I already tried a search for it (post) and this guy seems to have the same problem as me.

So I tried following the advice, and got stuck on navigating in DOS. I have no experience with DOS. So if someone can just explain that in detail that would be sweet. I also tried a search for that, but it didn't help me much. A lot of it was too vague.

But I'm not trying to get a program like that to work. I'm just trying to delete a file.
