    I am getting an access denied error when I try to access a couple of destop files or try to delete a start menu shortcut. I don't get this error for all files just a few. This is a home computer and I am the only user. My user is the administrator and I haven't intentional changed any access setting, Any suggestions?

    the files that you are attempting to delete may be in use. Try deleting them from safe mode.

    One of the items I am trying to delete is a start menu icon that sholdn't be in use. Also, the desltop icons are Word files that are not in use.

    Try checking the security settings for the files to verify that you have the needed privileges.
