Only because you use a Fisher Price OS like Windows, boot to a real OS from a usb or something and then rename or delete the file.

chkdsk fixes invalid filenames like the one you are dealing with now. Run it.

Could have used "Winhex" or raw access to filesystem (administrator) and rewrite the fileheader string to something else

But yes

chkdsk seems to fix it
