    Hello!

    For some time ago an icon appeared to my desktop. I can't delete it, I can't move it to another folder. It has no size or infomation. It is as if it is not excisting, but there it is. :doubt:

    It is named "get_video19." . No file extension, but its title is the same as the videos downloaded from Youtube (get_video). Could it be that a memory of a downloaded video popped out later? I tried to open it with notepad and now it has notepad's icon. I would like to have information about what it is and how to remove it if possible, please.

    My deepest apologizes if this thread is posted to a wrong section.

    Have you tried deleting it in safe mode?

    Or try making a new folder on the desktop and dragging and dropping the icon inside and deleting the folder.

    Also perhaps try Unlocker

    Thank you very much for answering so quick.

    It couldn't be moved away from Desktop and even Safe Mode didn't help. But Unlocker deleted it in a moment. Very useful program! :)

    Thank you very much for your help!
