 I have a XP computer. I have a folder shortcut pointing to old company network file server. I used to connect to corporate network using VPN tunnel. I deleted VPN connection in Control panel/Network  Adapter area. But whenever I try to delete this shortcut on my desktop, my computer hangs for 5 minutes and give me "Delete" option, but each time I chose "Delete", it never goes away.
Can you help?
