Desktop icon wont delete.

I downloaded an aircraft for fs9 which I now dont want.
I have deleted all other revelant files etc, but the desktop folder ( which is empty) wont delete. It is ' required by another person or programme'. All programmes are closed. It wont drag and drop anywhere either for the same reason. A Win search just reveals the desktop folder.
How do I delete it or find what is using it.
Just annoying not critical!
Thanks.

Many thanks. muddypaws
