    I checked the file path length and the attributes for the file and
    everything seems to be OK. I've renamed other files in that folder that
    have longer file names without a problem. I get a message that this file
    can not be opened for writing is there away around this? 'nother question
    is there an easy way to change a file name that has illegal characters in
    it? Mainly "?".

    Move the file somewhere else if you can, to work on it.

    In a CMD window in that directory, type DIR /X
    this displays your file's short file name - delete the file using that
    name. DEL <short filename>

    If all else fails or you get lazy there's Killbox

    You didn't want to delete it... then RENAME <shortfile name> to
    something simple.ext
