can't delete desktop icon

  lethalmonkey 16:21 10 Nov 2005

i downloaded itunes setup to my desktop but cancelled the download halfway through, unfortunatly i now cannot seem to delete the icon from my desktop. It tells me that it is being used by another person or program. Also when i click on the icon it tells me the file is corupt. I have tried looking at the applications/processes running and ended anything that looked like it was related, but it still would not let me delete it. can anyone help?
