I've got a couple of generic icons in a folder that I cannot delete for love or money. Windows XP Pro keeps telling me that the path to the specified files can't be found. I've tried to delete it from the command line and through two delete utilities and so far no luck. I even tried a system restore point and that didn't work either. Any suggestions?

Thank you!! That worked!!

I saw that in another forum post but from the description I didn't think it was suited to my situation and hence I passed on it. You learn something new every day!
