Having problems with your Dell XPS 210 PC Desktop ?

Cannot delete file

\015 I cannot delete an icon from my desktop. I get the error message "Cannot delete file: cannot read from the source file or disk". I downloaded this file from a friend. What do I do to get the icon off my desktop?\015

Answers :

Try this file called "Unlocker" - http://majorgeeks.com/download.php?det=4660
If that doesn't work, give "Pocket Kill Box" a shot: http://majorgeeks.com/download.php?det=4709
