I also have this problem. I downloaded a program for a virtual site and
created a shortcut. I have thoroughly uninstalled the program files. Now when
I try to delete or remove the shortcut icon from my desktop either by
dragging it to recycle bin or by right clicking on it and selecting delete
from the drop-down menu, I get a message box telling me the shortcut icon
cannot be deleted because the file does not exist. I just want to get this
icon off my desktop. Does someone have the solution?
