How to delete broken shortcut
Hi,
<<<< The Following Has Been Solved, Thanks anyway. >>>>


I have a shortcut that won't delete. After uninstalling the associated program its link remains on the desktop. When I move it to the bin I get the following error;

"Could not find this item

This is no longer locate in C:\bla\bla\bla"

Can someone help me get rid of this superflous link? Apologies if this is a repeated post, being new to Windows I'm not sure of termonology to search with.

Thanks in advance
