The problem is you have to find the file before you can delete it. You will probably have to do it from a "true" DOS prompt, not a windows one. But for preliminary test purposes, try this.

>> open a Windows DOS prompt (usually running: command will open one)

>> when the command prompt opens up: enter:

cd c:\incinerate

You should now see c:\incinerate\>

>> from there enter:

dir

all files in the directory should be displayed

dir c1.cab

should find that cab file. If it does, try the commands

del c1.cab
del c2.cab


Now the fact that you are really still in Windows and this directory may be protected will likely generate an error message. But if you got that far, then go to Start>Shutdown>Restart in MS-DOS mode and try the same thing. Or you can do that right off the bat if you are confident of your DOS skills.

From true DOS, exit, win or ctrl-alt-del will bring you back to Windows.
