How do I get rid of this

I have got an Icon on my desk top and I can't get rid of it. The program I have de-installed but the Icon is still there.

You should be able to right-click on it and then Delete - or, slide it over to the Recycle Bin.

Place cursor in desktop area where it is not over any icon. Right click and a box will appear with "Arrange icons by" at top, a sub box will then appear with "Run Desktop Cleanup Wizard" at the bottom of the sub box which is what you need.

Thanks for the replies, but I had already tried the delete and desktop clean up with no luck yesterday, but then I had to go out, so I shut down the laptop completely. When I rebooted this morning it was gone, so all's well that ends well.

OK - thanks for the feedback - so in your particular case, there would have been no problem if you had done a re-start after un-installing the item. May be worth remembering for the future!
