i am on vista 32 bit home premium...i have an "incinerator" icon on my desktop, dont remember where i got it, and it can not be deleted. when i move it to a folder it just copies itself to that folder as many times as i try. there is no shortcut arrow on it either. i tried using spybot, killbox, unlocker and nothing works. when i click on the properties it says it doesnt have any and the file is 0 bytes. there is no file path either....just to my desktop. i ran adaware 2008, spybot, mcafee....tried a command prompt i saw somewhere and nuthin.......anybody have ANY IDEA?

Hi chrishaney23

Welcome to BleepingComputer

Try this. Start>Documents. At the top of the left hand pane you should see DESKTOP. Click that and see if you can delete the icon now.
