Programme Problem

  Scabby 13:46 03 Oct 2006

Hi all,
I inadvertently placed a stand alone programme on my desktop. Now I cannot delete it, everytime I try it state "You cannot delete as it may be in use by another programme or person" I have tried everything to hand to try to stop it loading at startup but it seems it still does.
Can someone point me please, either isolate it so it doesn't load at start up or just delete it

Try booting into safe mode (press F8 at startup) and see if you can delete it then.

I have done that, no joy.!
also I have tried to isolate the program by renaming it, re-diverting the load path, making invisible, locking, renaming, all to no avail. This little B isn't it seems going anywhere.
I read somewhere that you should not put programmes on the desktop but never had any reason not to till now.
thanks for any replies.
