How to delete a NTFS filesystem file whose name contains ":"?

http://unix.stackexchange.com – I backup some of my Linux files in a NTFS removable hard disk several days ago, this time I need to remove those files. But I find it difficult since: On windows, it complains that "Could not find this item" On a virtual machine whose OS is ubuntu 12.04, when I mount the hard disk(I guess it's using "ntfs-3g") and use "rm", it complains "No such file or directory"; even "ls" fails for the file. So are there any ways to smash this file correctly? (HowTos)
