    Are you receiving a message when you try to delete it?

    Try booting in safe mode and deleting it, if you can't delete it there i
    would suspect it's some kind of malware in which case you should google
    the file name and see if anything shows up with a way to delete it.

    Nope, I don't think it's malware. I had the same problem and found a solution on another thread. Just uninstall Quicktime (it may prompt you to reboot in order to complete the uninstallation) and then delete the file. Quicktime seems to have all sorts of conflicts with Vista.
