I have no idea if this is true on AIX, but you should try to escape that backslash and bracket. So...
Code:
rm \\033\[2~evtlog.2009-01-07
Anyway, can't you just type..
Code:
rm \\
..and hit <tab> to use autocompletion?

You can try placing the file name in double-quotes. For example:
Code:
rm "\033[2~evtlog.2009-01-07"

*** WARNING ***
Always try the command "ls" (to make sure you're really getting the file(s) you expect) before you actually use "rm"!!!!!
