I tried to download a PDF but something went wrong during the download and I ended up with a file icon on my desktop without any extension and having 0 bytes. When I try and delete this file icon I get the error message: Could not find item. This is no longer located in C:\Users\Myname\Desktop. Verify the item's location and try again. This seems like a contradiction - Windows is showing a file icon on the desktop but then says there is no file there! I have tried searching for a file by that name elsewhere and there is nothing. I have also tried cleaning the reg and doing a disk cleanup. Any suggestions as to how to delete this useless file icon from my desktop? Thanks.
