Windows 7: Corrupted Icons on Desktop

Corrupted Icons on Desktop

I can not remove a couple of icons on my desktop. They seem to be inactive, I can not open the properties, delete them, or change the icons name. I can drag them to the recycle bin but it wont take them. They are all related to Autocad 2000i. Also I have put some files in my Autocad folder and cannot open them. This is just some of the icons and files that I have transfered from another network computer. All my other Autocad icons and files open just fine.

Hello Sdlshop, and welcome to Seven Forums.

You might see if the free program Unlocker may be able to delete them for you.

If not, then you might see if using the tutorial below to delete them in a command prompt at boot may be able to.

File - Delete from Command Prompt

Hope this helps,
Shawn

Thanks Brink !!!! you saved me allot of time. The Unlocker fixed the problem and I was able to delete the desktop icons that have been keeping me up at night.

Thanks Again
