Ghost icon needs exorcising

My Spybot began playing up recently, freezing during updating with "OE" messages, so I decided to uninstall it, but even that took 2 or 3 attempts before I could get rid of it.
However as a parting shot it left an empty "ghost icon" on my start menu which refuses to delete, I get the message "cannot delete, file error 1026" whatever that means.
The icon doesn't bother me too much but I'm getting glitches elsewhere in my system and the thought crossed my mind that it may be causing them..
Any suggestion how I can get rid of the icon?
I'm Win 98SE, PC-illiterate..

Try reinstalling it, and then uninstall again using it's own uninstall program. Also try running CCleaner click here
