I cant deleted this file on my desktop. It is an empty file(0 bytes), I tried renaming it and tried deleting it in safe mode.....still I get " Cannot delete file: Cannot read from the source file or disk."


I did a search for the file and nothing shows! not even the actual file that is on my desktop. So used "registry cleaner" to see if it will delete it...nope. I tried safe mode again and the same problem.

I ran AVG, Norton, Escan, Hijack, all came clean. nothing wrong.

any ideas?

thanks :eek:

Using Windows Explorer, check the following locations for this file:

C:\Documents and Settings\User\Desktop
C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Desktop

Also perform a search and give us the exact location (Path) of this file in the computer (Exact path), including its label.
