Hi
I hope I am in the correct forum.
I am having trouble removing the ICONS off my windows XP desktop. When I right click to DELETE the icons on desktop; it says cannot delete; being used by another program or person, but I do not have anything else running?? The icons that I CANNOTdelete are blue and white boxes ..these square boxes have white with a BLUE margin on top of square with 3 dots in the blue margin (I am trying to explain what these boxes(icons)look like!
I can delete other desktop items..NOt these though
Can anyone please help..This is a used computer with Mozilla Firefox and Internet Explorer on it as browsers..my IE will not work..also,another owner is registered on this computer as it's used
Hope someone can help!! My account also has a GUESt but no one is logged onto that!
