cannot delete 2 adobe icons from desktop that are files.

Windows XP Professional.

Two Icons were loaded on the desktop from an external drive, and the will not let us access them to delete or open them.  Both files are adobe.

"access denied, you do not have permission"

"access denied, disk might full or you do not have access."

all we wan to do is delete these from the desktop.

thanks

Use KillBox.

Sounds like a dodgy name but it doesn the trick. Just choose the file then go delete on reboot. Then they should be gone when you restart.

Unlocker is also a program that can be used if a file is locked by an application to force the program to stop using the file.

Yeah, try deleting it from safe from using the "Administrator" account or try creating a new account and try deleting the files from there. Also, try IceSword (http://www.antirootkit.com/software/IceSword.htm)
