Turn off User Account Control in your settings.
log in with ur brothers account, and edit your account and give yourself privileges as an admin.

no still doesn't work it''s hopeless
its something wrong with vista...dont think i can help mate.
ok thanks anyway red.
i'll ask around on the forum to see if anyone else has an idea
try this!!!!
right click and run as administrator!
have u tried running in safe mode and deleting it hit f8 during start up and select safe mode

have u restarted your comp after deleting it sometimes it stays till after a restart

also u could try right clicking your desktop and refreshing it might go jut a thought

hope u get it sorted
thanks a lot mate worked straiht away in safe mode.
