    /etc/apt/sources.list help

    well I tried fixing my avant windows navigator problem with a tutorial and I made a few mistakes from me being to fast.
    I ended up adding things not needed in the /etc/apt/sources.list.
    I removed everything except some random thing that will not remove.
    I tried going in it by actually going into it and just backspacing and it said permission denied.So help?
    I know if I can fix this I can fix my other problem =[.
