I can use computers but technically I am a novice - what are jpg files - how are they different from other files - how do you delete them please ? or am I asking a silly question ? - jarani

Delete like any other file. If one won't delete use Unlocker click here

They are easily deleted in the normal way.

It's best to retain original photo files so that they can be used again without any loss of information; an edited file is saved using "Save As."

VoG & Stuartli - many thanks for your suggestions - I am still battling this - it seems that this file / shortcut (?) - JPG file size 132 kb - downloaded itself maliciously some 6 months ago and will not be shifted by any kind means - it cannot be moved or deleted even in a safe mode - I am at wits end - regards - jarani

.jpg is a picture file, what is the full name of the file you are having the problem with? Also what happens when you click on that file - normally a picture would open!

I would have thought it not very wise to click on the .jpeg in question.

If you hover the mouse cursor over the file does any information appear?

Technotiger - my granddaughter of 13 downloaded some free music some 6 months ago when this file came with it giving a " porn shortcut " which neither she nor I ever followed up .

She now has a laptop to which she transferred all her files when we realised that that file was still there and will not be budged .

Having deleted all her files I tried to remove her account from my desktop but that file will not permit that either . I think that if it is a shortcut it is now dead . there is no name to that file, except JPG file and size with some references to the available porn

when I right clicked on other files there was a delete option but there is no such option on this file - I found it via Safe route as an administrator but that will not delete either

Is there any way of getting shot of it ?

I tried system restore but that only takes me back to May - I need to go back to Feb - I am also afraid of what a system restore will do to my recently installed wireless network - jarani

Stewartli - When you hover over it it says : -

" Hot Young Newest Photo by Carl Preteen [email protected] followed by porn references and JPG file size 132 Kb "

VoG - I will follow your link - jarani

VoG - that link does not work for me - jarani
