I have a file on my desktop that no matter how I try it wont let me delete it :(
I remember some time ago some one had a similar problem and a member gave a link to a free utility called REMOVE ON BOOT or something like that.

Anyhow I have googled and searched this forum but I just can't find it. Anyone no of a utility that will remove any file?


thx...rob

Thank you for the reply, no that's not the one that seems to need to be in the start up of the pc. The programme I used to have would remove a file on demand. thank's for the link though.

If I remember correctly it was a link given by hewee to a thread I was reading.

One way you might find it if you can remember roughly when it was is to click on heewees name and then on find all posts by heewee,its a long shot but the best I can think of

Hi Rob,
'CWShredder' or 'Killbox' may be the application :)
Cheers, Yvonne

so yeah, this thread is like 3 years old? but i've run into the same problem.

i have a file, when i look at its properties, it says it has 0 bytes and practically it no longer exist. BUT the icon is still on my desktop and i cant get rid of it.

i tried the links that were posted here and some of them are no longer working. i'm wonderin if anyone has the answer for a windows vista? i tried tune-up utilities and that's not even working. i tried some other softwares but perhaps i just dont know jack about computers to know what im really suppose to be looking for.
