GEEK HELP REQUESTED.....
Okay, this is soemthing new for me and just started happening this week....

Whenever I save anything to my desktop it becomes "PERMENANT"....not only can't I drag it to the trash can I can't even relocate it on the desktop....when I click on it I get the CIRCLE SLASH thingy....previous to this week, and nothing new has been installed on my computer unless it was done remotely by one of those folks that so treasures me, I could save anything to the desktop and when I was finished I could delete it....

So anyone have any idea what I need to do to be able to delete these unwanted items off of my desktop?

Thanks,

Steve

It sounds like you have your desktop locked. I assume you are running windows XP. Try going into your desktop properties under the "desktop" tab choose the "customise desktop" button and click on the "web" tab and see if the destop is lock.

That's all I can think of.

I seem to remember something like that just before I crashed my puter. Naw just kidding. I always shut it down (with crossed fingers) and reboot. (Have to share the puter with my wife lately. She sure can get it turned inside out.)

I see Mike has that cocked head thing down to a science. Nice avatar. Hope your getting out more than I am out here.
