A while ago I dowloaded a game and subsequently removed it from my Pocket PC.
However, the icon for the help file related to this game remains in the
programmes menu. If I click the icon it says "cannot find ballsclues, or one
of its components". Presumably because I have already deleted the game. How
do I get rid of the irritating little icon???????

Thanks.

Ooops... Sorry, pressed wrong key before!

On your Pocket PC open File Explorer, browse to \Windows\Start
Menu\Programs. In this folder you'll find all shortcuts to programs in the
Program group. Delete the shortcut here.
