I'm running vista ultimate, and i have a music icon on my desktop. but it says 0 bytes and when i try to delete it is says "This is no longer located in "path". Verify the items location and try again".

I tried to search for this file and i found it but it still didn't let me delete it i have no idea how to delete this file. i tried doing it in the regedit but it couldn't find it?

please help me out guys/gals,

thanks goodlockin.
