I downloaded PacMan from Tiny Windows Games.com. It went into my WinZip files. The instructions said I have to have some kind of ROM files ?? for this game to work. I don't know what that is. Now the icon is on my desktop for Tiny Windows Games.com. When I click on it, it doesn't do anything but just sit there. Right-clicking doesn't get any response either. I would like to delete it from my desktop. How do I accomplish that?

Interesting...

What OS? Assuming 98 - can you delete it from the folder, c:\windows\desktop (in my computer or windows explorer)

Hi,

Try this:

Back up your registry: Start/Run/Scanregw/yes.

Go to Start/run and type Regedit.

Navigate to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\explorer\Desktop\NameSpace

One at a time, click each of the keys under NameSpace, watching the name that appears in the right pane's Data column. One of them should match the icon you want to get rid of. When you find it, right-mouse click its key in the left pane, choose Delete, and close the Registry Editor.
Click on the desktop once to place the focus there, then hit F5 on your keyboard (to refresh). The icon will disappear.

Good luck,
