I dont know how or why but i have 7 icons on my desktop and they wont let me delete them. They are things like online poker, travel, printer cartridges.

I have tried to select them all and when i right click nothing happens, but my normal icons will right click. I have tried dragging the icons to the recycle bin which normally work but i am having no luck.

Has anybody have any ideas on how to get rid of these icons

Thanks in advance.................

Have you tried Spybot S & D or Adaware to see if they're picked up?

Hi, if you look through this Forum, on any page, you will see lots of people with exactly the same problem - plus all the responses that in most cases have had successful results.

Good luck. Happy New Year.

Hi, me again - if you type "icons on desktop" without the astericks, into the Search box on the left, then click on the arrow, you will see what I mean.
