Had tried everything I could think of including johnnyrockers post, to delete an empty file on my desktop which was really annoying me. Before totally giving up and resorting to try hiding it behind a desktop icon, I went to the search forum and from a previous post a member recommended a little free prog called 'Unlocker' for this sort of problem.. Downloaded it and it blitzed it instantly.

I will leave this open for a while so other members can see the answer

This forum is priceless!
