Undeletable desktop icon

Hi
Until recently I had the PC Suite from Nokia installed on my Laptop. When I
uninstalled the suite the desktop icon remained and I cannot delete it. When
right clicking on that icon there is no "delete" in the drop down box and
highlighting properties achieves nothing. I have run various spyware/adware
detection programs and my system is clean. Also I have search my system for
any "nokia" file and can find nothing except the desktop icon in desktop. I
have also tried deleting it from My Computer and Explorer but to no avail.
Very grateful to any guru that may hold an answer.

H PJC,

From an administrator account follow this path, if the file is there
delete it if you can.
C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Desktop

Try running Desktop Cleanup.

Right click on your desktop and in "Arrange Icons By" menu Select "Run
Desktop Cleanup Wizard"
