cant remove a setup.exe from desktop

  fredo3 16:41 06 Jun 04


Downloaded a free chess game and after seeing how rubbish it was... I ununstalled the program but now when I delete the setup icon it just says "in use by another program cannot delete."

Any ideas?

Ive tried re-booting and run the antivirus but still the same

Go to start-run and type msconfig-go to start up and see if it is in there, if it is untick it. You could also start in save mode and delete whilst in it. Also you can download Enditall, which will automatically close down all unnecessary programmes...they will all restart when you here

Download EnditAll [find in Google] and that will kill the unwanted and then delete it instanter.

Reboot in safe mode ( Press F8 When booting ) Don't worry that it takes along time or looks strange, then delete the offending program. Then reboot.Hopefully problem solved!
