An XP request

For reasons that I will not go into, I am forced to boot into XP on a daily basis. I’m not happy about it, but I have no choice. Unfortunately, I made the mistake of allowing TPAM to use my laptop one day, and he has the execrable habit of copying things to the Desktop.

Hence, I am left with a ghost icon called “fax..” on my desktop. When I try to delete it, I get a “Cannot delete file. Cannot read from the source file or disk.” Going to the DOS shell and running a directory doesn’t even show any file called “fax..” and yes, it has two periods.

Does anyone know how to get rid of this icon? Intelligent suggestions will be appreciated; I already run Fedora Core 2 most of the time and would not even be booting into XP if I had any alternative. Thanks….
