    Welcome to the forums!

    You'll need ntfs-3g to write to ntfs. Try using your distribution package tool to install it if you don't already have it.

    Oops... sorry, but I misread your post. Try booting with a liveCD such as Parted Magic, then navigate to the file in question and delete it from there.
