    Hello! I installed "The Sims 2" on my computer but uninstalled it the next
    day as I have Windows Vista and it wasn't really compatible, but the desktop
    shortcut is still there. I have tried right-clicking to delete it but a
    message appears saying that it cannot find the file (obviously because I have
    uninstalled the program) and asks me to verify the location before I can
    delete it.

    I did uninstall the program correctly through the option in "Control Panel"
    and I did not see any option to uninstall it manually so I'm really stuck!

    Any help would be greatly appreciated!

    try refreshing your desktop, it might be deleted, but still ther

    you can either click on you background and hit F5 or right click on yo
    background and hit refresh.

    might be a simple fix. otherwise you can always delete the file in DOS
    then refresh you background again
