    I have an icon on my desktop. It was from an email my husband received. My husband removed the email message. I tried to remove the icon but it states: Cannot delete file: cannot read from source file or disk. So it will not allow me to delete it. Ages ago I thougth I remembered someone here suggesting a program to get rid of icons/programs like this. Can anyone help me. Very much appreciate the help.
