Does this show a file path?

C:\documents and settings\peter
can you copy the exact path and post it

this should open to c:\documents and settings\marc & grace
type in cd desktop(there is a space between cd and desktop) press enter
it should now be c:\documents and settings\marc & grace\desktop
type dir if you see the file name CA496V8T. type del CA496V8T.
if you see the file and it has CA496V8T.ico or exe or some other 3 letter code type that in also with the . eg del CA496V8T.ico (space between del and file name).
to exit from command type exit and press enter

The file doesnt show up atall when i perfom a dir on c:/etcetc/desktop and attempting a, del filename doesnt work either
The file on my desktop also has no 3 letter designation, its name is simply 'CAVU4BBL.' with the . and nothing more after, also the error lounge2fly posted a screenshot of is identical to mine.
