    I ran MRU Blaster to clean up files and received the following error message for a shortcut:

    "The source filename(s) are larger than is supported by the file system. Try moving to a location which has a shorter path name, or try renaming to shorter name(s) before attempting this operation.

    Results:
    Total Items Detected: 2

    MS OFFICE 'Recent' Folder (User)
    Windows 'Recent Folder Item - 0

    I did a Window's explorer search utilizing the name of the shortcut file but no hits. I therefore can't proceed in removing the file(s) that are giving me the trouble.

    Windows 7.
    Latest version of MRU Blaster

    The other annoying this is that when I go to start up Windows the Error Message itself keeps popping up on my screen even if I select the "skip option" in the MRU Blaster.
