I have full administrator rights on this computer.
I have tried deleting the shortcuts from the command prompt, but access is still denied.
I have tried starting windows in safe mode (and running the command prompt in safe mode) from the default windows administrator account, but access is still denied.
I have tried using free programs similar to ccleaner, but the invalid shortcut finder/deleter/start menu cleaner/similar functon of these programs simply does not recognise these as broken links, and so does not give me the option to fix or delete them.
The shortcuts are on my desktop, and are found in the folder:
"C:\Documents and Settings\James.JAMESROOM\Desktop"
Can somebody please advise me how to delete or fix these invalid shortcuts? Either removing them completely or changing them so they become valid shorcuts (I do have the programs they are shortcuts for installed on my computer) would be solutions to this problem.
