Unwanted things on desktop

  Gigs 23:14 14 Jun 05

I recently downloaded a game demo which was successful but at the same time it downloaded another couple of demos which I did not want. I have now finished with the demo and want to delete it together with the unwanted ones.
I went Add/Remove in control panel and deleted from there but the icons are still on the desktop. When I right click on them and try to delete them I get the message 'Cannot delete. It is being used by another person or program' As far as I know it is not being used by anything else. I cannot even move the icons to another folder.
How do I get rid of these annoying things please?

I will be off line until tomorrow but will check back then. Thanks in advance.

Zaphod Beeblebrox. Tried the program files but the icons are still ther.

Alltime. Have tried a similar program to that but still the pesky things won't go.

If I go to a restore point to a date before I dowloaded the demo would that work?

Yes it should.

Fruit Bat/\0/Thanks for that

Thank you. Have downloaded that little thing but have a stupid boy question. I unzipped it and have the zip icon on the desktop but not the application itself. Where is it please?

Right click an icon or file. Do you get Remove on Next Reboot on the pop-up menu? If so, it is installed.

AAARGH They're still there!!

Sorry, there's a posting before that last one. Yes, Remove on reboot is there. I have tried it but the icons are still there. Looks like I will have to go for the restore.
