    I am very old & technically illiterate so please make it simple.

    I put 3 CDs of photos on to my computer & they worked all right.
    I went to put on a fourth one but the individual icons appeared on my deastop & I am unable to get rid of them. I have put each one in the recycle bin immediately deleted them from the bin ( I thought satisfactorily). Every time I go back to my desktop they are there again. I must have tried this 12 times & am despairing. I tried restore dates back to before I put it on but this makes no difference. PLEASE HELP ME.

    what do the icons look like
    can we see a screen shot at all

    To post a screen shot of the active window.
    1) hold the Alt key and press the PrtScn key. Open the Windows PAINT application (Start> All Programs> Accessories> Paint) and Paste the screen shot. You can then use PAINT to trim to suit, and save it as a JPG format file.

    To upload the screen shot to the forum, open the full reply window ("Go Advanced" button) and use the Manage Attachments button to upload it here.

    Thankyou. Although I have managed the screenshot I can't seem to upload it.It keeps saying uploading, but nothing appears on this screen.
    My son couldn't help with my original question but I will see if he can help with the uploading, but this will be to-morrow.
    Thanks again.

    Just something to try. I see you have a folder on your desktop titled "New Folder". If that is empty, can you drag and drop the photos on the desktop to be deleted into that "New Folder"?

    Are you sure you deleted them from the bin and didn't restore?
