Forcing Desktop Refresh

I know there's a file in Windows that you can delete so it will forcibly update it's desktop icons. I'd like to know which file it is. Thanks!

The file name is "ShellIconCache" and is located in the Windows directory.  I'm not sure if windows will let you delete it from Windows Explorer.  If not, try it from a Dos prompt.

Great! And don't worry, I wanna delete it exactly from the command line, as I need it for scripting purposes.
