How do I delete these files from my desktop?


I'm running XP SP3. There are files on my desktop that I cannot delete. I am logged in with admin permissions. I have changed the file permissions. I can't drag the files to the recycle bin, I can't right-click / delete, I can't get rid of these stoopid files. I get "Cannot delete file xyz: Access is denied. Make sure the disk is not full or write-protected and that the file it not currently in use." I have rebooted. Everything else works fine. I can delete most files from anywhere on the hard drive.
