The Windows’ AVI File of Death

I swear to God, my Windows XP installation is haunted.

On my storage drive, I have an AVI file I made that is possessed. It clearly is letting me know that it doesn’t like me.

If I click on it, Winndows Explorer crashes without explanation. If I click on a different file, then press the down arrow to highlight the file in an attempt to delete it, it crashes again, when I press delete. Then it doesn’t delete. Also, hovering the mouse over the file is fatal to Explorer.

Running Cygwin as administrator and deleting the file through the command line fixed it.
