    I have an icon on my desktop which I can't get rid of. When I try to send it
    to the recycle bin, I get a message "message contains a name too long for
    recycle bin----do you want to delete? When selecting yes, I get "cannot
    delete ,access is denied". How do I get rid of it ? I have winxp,but the
    restore option doesn't remove it.

    Can't tell you much, but someone will be along shortly to offer advice. In
    the meantime, you might like to look for earlier posts on the same subject.

    Rindler Sigurd would also like me to tell you that you should not jump off
    the roof of your house. You might hurt yourself, apparently.

    And as for posting, whatever you do, don't post in HTML. And if you want to
    post test messages, please use a TEST group.

    The purpose of test newsgroups is to allow users to test
    their news software and servers without annoying others.


    Thank You :-[*]

    This probably won't work, but have you tried deleting it in the safe mode?

    can you rename it with a shorter name?
