can you find it using windows explorer and delete it that way?

Alternatively can you uninstall it using add / remove programs?

In explorer go to

C:\documents & settings\all users\desktop

Also look under individual user names, ie

C:\documents & settings\user name\desktop

If you don't have Explorer icon you can R click on the Start button and choose explore

i followed your instructions & found it on its own at the bottom of everything .. it just crashed the whole system from there also
