Hi, can someone please tell me how to remove an unwanted desktop icon.It's an installer icon for Adobe reader and although I've uninstalled the program I can't get rid of the desktop icon. It does'nt show up on any list of desktop items. Any help will be much appreciated Thanks

Can you not just right click and delete in the normal way?
Sometimes just right clicking and selecting refresh on the desktop will remove it after an uninstall.

Have you tried removing it in Safe Mode (F8 at startup)?

Sorry guys, tried all of the above, still no joy

If it really matters about getting rid of it, go back and reinstall Adobe Reader and then try uninstall again via Install/Uninstall in Control Panel and see if that works.
