You're asking for another work around?

Why not boot in safe mode with command prompt, kill the dllhost.exe process, then navigate to the file location & delete it.

Form the command prompt:

taskkill /f /im "dllhost.exe"
pushd "C:\Users\%USERNAME%\desktop"
del /p "the_file.asf"

✔ Best Answer
I think this is another input to the original January post. In which case that would have been the best place to put it because the post is still active. I have input a link to this post on the original one.

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks

Derek is correct about the intent of my post. The answers at the original thread, which was and is marked as closed, were rather esoteric when a simpler approach works.
