When I am on the net I download files to my desktop.
However, when I look at the desktop, these files are not here although I can see them using explorer (locally)
I can then even copy them from explorer onto my desktop.

I have also a 2nd dekstop folder at
(which I shouldn’t have but accidentally dropped it there when trying to back up the desktop folder to my CD)

I cannot delete it as access is denied.
How can I get all my files to show in windows/desktop where they should be ?
and how do I get rid of the desktop folder at windows/cursors/desktop ?
