Removing short cuts from desktop

  Ikarus 19:57 13 Apr 15

I have a short cut on the desktop which refuses to delete. The programme to which it refers has been uninstalled but when right clicking the shortcut the computer pauses (revolving circle on screen) and then comes up with the message "Windows exoplorer has stopped working" with the usual options. Restarting re-sets the desktop but the same thing happens if I then right click the shortcut and the cycle starts all over again.

Any suggestions to solve this would be appreciated.

Have you tried in Safe Mode?

Have you tried to drag it to the bin ?

Or, re-install then uninstall the program.
