hiya, installed a program and have moved the app to the start menu but the folder it installed cannot be deleted. when going into programdata/microsoft/windows/startmenu/programs and trying to delete it it gives the error;
could not find this item, verify the items location and try again
despite this it is always there, every reboot. ive tried taking ownership of the file (i have a menu option to do this) and everything else i can think of it still gives the error!
its pedantic but i do want to get rid of it. it has done this on two computers. any assistance would be appreciated, cheers

Have you tried deleting it directly from the Start Menu, rather than going to Program Data? What file manager are you using...Windows Explorer? Rather than going to the path that you mentioned, have you tried going to the Start Menu path for your username in users? Or the same logged into Administrator?
Try this path copy and paste it into the run dialog C:\Users\JohnSmith\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs replace JohnSmith with your username (you may have to show hidden files and folders. And read this it's really quite helpful Svrops.com - Windows Vista Junction Points
