Default Re: .exe will not delete

someone on here would know exactly what to do... and i cant remember what to do exactly and i dont wanna steer you wrong, but i kno that when i had an icon that i couldn't get rid of, I went into the windows registry and edited/deleted it.... this makes the icon disappear (assuming its on your desktop).

Dunno if that helps, but someone else might know what im talking about or you could even google it. good luck either way.


edit: this may or may not help: http://support.microsoft.com/?kbid=162170
