My OS is XP Prof'.An icon has managed to appear,not sure how, on "MY DOCUMENTS" entitled Drive(C).When I attempt to delete it I get a panel entitled 'Error Deleting File or Folder'stating 'Cannot delete FLASHp~1:The file name you specified is not valid or too long.Specify a different file name.' Any suggestions on how to remove the Drive(C) icon from MY DOCUMENTS folder.

I'm sure that you've already tried this but, have you re-booted your PC yet?
