  1. Hi all, would appreciate any help from anyone who knows how to delete icons from my desktop. I get a message of the program being used by another person or program and therefore cannot be deleted. The path is C:\Documents and Settings\Chris\Desktop\GravityGemsSetup-dm and C:\Documents and Settings\Chris\Desktop\DinerDashsetup-dm

    I downloaded these games from Yahoo games and uninstalled the programs successfully from my hard disk but cannot delete them from my desktop. Please help!
