About 2 years ago i put the Briefcase on my desktop , i have XP Home sp3 ,i have quite happily been bringing various small programmes down thro this and have been able to Delete them when nessesary . but one programme i put into Briefcase which incidentally is an Orphan with about 815 megabyte attached to it cannot be deleted. the writing for this programme which is FSX Demo has turned Blue and when i click on it to delete it The computer goes into a frenzy and will not delete.i then cannot use my Mouse to stop it whatever its trying to do as the Hour Glass is there and i have to reboot to continue.
My question is how can i get to empty the Briefcase without clicking on this item

If i click on the item it immediatly seems to freeze or goes into an endless cycle of trying to do something and i do not get the options to open ,delete etc. I may have in the past just deleted it without going throug the correct procedure in add or remove programmes
