Shortcut to nowhere.

    I installed a program, Slysoft's Virtual Clone drive. It wasn't what
    I wanted so I uninstalled it from control panel / programs & features.
    Nothing unusual there. I'm sure that is the 'right' way to remove an
    unwanted program.

    But, now I have a blank shortcut on the desktop. Vista won't let me
    delete it. It says "Verify the items location and try again.".

    But it's been uninstalled, it's not there, there's nowhere to point
    it. Just DELETE the damn shortcut please.

    "Verify the items location and try again."
    "Verify the items location and try again."
    "Verify the items location and try again."
    "Verify the items location and try again."
    "Verify the items location and try again."
    "Verify the items location and try again."
    "Verify the items location and try again."
    .........

    Whats the trick? I'm beginning to get the hump with Vista!

    Download a proggy called unlocker and that should do the trick
    Good luck

    I would try re-installing the offending program. Remove the shortcut,
    & then uninstall again.

    Just a note to say that after a reboot the shortcut vanished. Vista
    did a bit of houseleeping. Wish it would sort my front room out!
