Icon on Desktop that I can't delete

  EmptyJay 18:53 11 Sep 2003

I have a 'MyPsion' icon left on my desktop (W98SE) from some software that I've now uninstalled. Can't move icon to Recycle bin or right-click & delete it. Can anyone suggest how to get rid of it!

Have you tried deleting it from Safe Mode, EmptyJay?

Is it a shortcut or a program? if the latter, could be it's in use. Have a look in start/run/msconfig and see if it is run at startup, if so, disable it, reboot and try to delete it again.

What about installing the software again, deleting the icon first, then the actual programme/software.
