I made some kind of a mistake in copying a file from My Documents to a folder on my Desktop. The folder shows a scrap file now. I know what this file is and that it contains the data I wanted to copy. I also read the MS KB about it ehich states:

In Microsoft Word and Microsoft Excel, you can drag and drop selected document text, drawing objects, and graphics to the Windows desktop. A desktop icon is created for the scrap file, along with a file located in the Windows\Desktop subfolder with an .shs extension. This file is a native program document that contains the information that was selected and dragged onto the Windows desktop. If you select and delete the desktop icon, the corresponding .shs file is also deleted. You can select and drag a scrap file on the desktop into another document.


The problem is that there is no desktop icon. The file is sitting inside a folder on the Desktop. I tried to copy and paste it to the Desktop, but won't do that. I made a new folder on the Desktop and I could paste in there. The problem now is that I can neither delete the new folder nor the scrap file in it and also not the original scrap file in the other folder where I copied it from...

I tried renaming the shscrap.dll in the System 32 Folder, after deleting the file type/s, also tried the DelinvFile.exe, but it still will not give up!

Any other ideas?

If you want to delete the file, try a program called 'Unlocker'
