I have a weird problem with an icon for Softsqueeze that was installed when
I loaded Softsqueeze 2.0a11. I have since installed the 6.0 final and
Softsqueeze 2.0b2 and cannot delete the shortcut for Softsqueeze 2.0a11.

The properties for the shortcut say "this is not a valid shortcut" and when
I try to delete the shortcut I get a Windows XP error box saying "Cannot
delete file: Cannot read from the source file or disk".

Any ideas on this? Rather annoying and what not.

Softsqueeze desktop icon can't be removed?haved you tried rebooting.
That might clear up the lock on the file

I've had that happen too. I think I just deleted the .lnk shortcut file from a
command prompt.

I just had that right now after softsqueeze upgraded itself from
2.0a16 to 2.0b2. I pressed the <F5> key to "refresh" my desktop and
that icon disappeared... :-)
