Then there's one of 3 things left:

1	Find something running as a service which oughtn't
	to be there (CTRL-ALT-DEL:task manager:processes).
	Kill it and delete it, look for refs to it in the 
	registry and delete them.  If you have no idea what
	I'm talking about then mail me a list of processes.

or (less likely)

2	I'm hearing something about SYSTEM.INI resetting
	the Windows shell to 'explorer.exe' and appending
	some autorun shit to it.  Worth checking just in case.

or (much less likely)

3	Make sure you've got the permission required to nuke
	the file.  If you're not logged in as Administrator
	it might not work.
