Desktop Icon removal?

  wackster 15:55 15 Jul 2006

I have tried to download a Netscape cache browser from a free downloads site, it advised using their download tool, anyway, things went wrong.I deleted the download manager, but now have an icon on my desktop called [email protected] (the programme I was trying to download I suspect), when trying to remove it I get a message that the programme is in use by another person or programme and cannot be deleted, I have tried everything that I know to close the programme to remove it but have failed! Any suggestions please

Try rebooting in safe mode and deleting?

And make sure that [email protected] or any other new exe file isn't running at the time. If it is, just kill it with Task Manager.

Haven't seen you post that before - one for the bookmarks.
