So I have found a temporary way to delete the file, but how do I keep it from popping back on my Desktop. It always pop back up when I download anything or save a picture from online. It doesn't matter which directory or folder I save the files or pictures at. I am out of ideas! Again any help would be appreciated!

Browser? Are you using a download manager?
It sounds like whatever you are using is creating a temp file, then not cleaning up after itself.

Just a tip about getting Delete FXP Files:
Apparently, at this point, the developer no longer issues a free (but limited) version of the software. Instead, the developer's website offers various pay versions with increased functionality (file renaming, etc.), as well as a trial version of the software which has a limit of 5 deletes (and for me, for some reason, each deletion counted as 2, limiting me to 3 file deletes). This may be enough for you. But if you are impressed with the software and want to keep it around should you need it in the future for other pesky files, an earlier version of the software, which is not limited in the number of file deletions and which also deletes folders and their contents, can still be found around the Internet through a quick search (thank you, Internet memory!). Look for version 1.2.72, which I found at download.cnet.com (as well as many other sites), and which actually shows as Version 1.9.138 when installed on my system. Even though it's an older version (from 2005 or so), it works fine on a Windows 7 64-bit system, and without needing to set compatibility mode.
Again, thanks for the help here!
