I just did a complete reinstall of XP on my wife's computer to resolve issues of speed and non-working IE 6. That went fine (took all day though). One of the last programs I installed was Palm software and it left a ghost image of a file folder on the desktop. I know it's Palm associated b/c if you roll over it the tool tip says Palm something briefly. I can't delete this file. Any suggestions?

Well, I got rid of it. I was trying to delete it as a "User" (I guess XP Home doesn't have Power Users). I had installed the program as administrator, and when I changed the settings back I was able to delete the ghost. Learn something new every day. Thanks for responding.
