I have already tried that method. I also tried to connect my computer as a slave hard disk and attached it to a linux machine, there, the file gets deleted easily but no matter what i do the file comes back again when i boot my computer. Please help, any other way?

I have this file on my computer and i searched for it for a while, then i cam to know its a Logitech ImageStudio file which is required for it to work properly. You computer may be giving you false positive or the file was infected with the virus later on. I hope this helps...
