Help removing high pitched tone from video files

I have a couple of video files that emit a high-pitched tone when played in virtually any media player, mplayer, xine, vlc. I know it is only these certain files because other video files and music play fine. Is there any program or way to remove a tone above a certain amount of Hz? It sounds sort of like a TV tone only much more audible. In mplayer it tends to go up and down in waves while xine has one constant tone. The tones are played along with the regular audio. They are avi's.

Use an equalizer or extract the audio track and edit it with an audio editor like audacity. With audacity fine out the tone and duplicate it in another audio track. Then invert the second audio track. The tone should go away. Though it could be a corrupted audio track.
