    I have an Icon on Windows XP that will not allow me to delete it. It's a sony ericsson file manager for my mobile phone - and it's the only icon on my desktop which i can't move or delete. Is there a way to bypass the protection on it?

    start > run > regedit

    and delete this registry key:

    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\\SOFTWARE\\Mi crosoft\\Windows\\CurrentVersion \\Explorer\\Desktop\\NameSpace\\ {A5110426-177D-4e08-AB3F-785F10B4439C}]

    or download tweakUI, that'll let you remove it.

    One last thing; this thread is in the wrong forum.
