Hello, I appreciate the help you may be able to give me. I was downloading a program and SweetPcFix got into my computer somehow. I went to programs and removed it, but what has happened is that SweetPcFix icon on my desktop cannot be removed. When I try to delete it, it tells me that I need Administrator permission.
Thank you for your time.

If you were able to install the software then it seems that you already have Administrator permissions and this problem could easily be solved by installing an unlocking utility which bypasses the restriction or the error in this case. Please download and install Unlocker. Use "Run as Administrator" when you install it and then right-click the icon on your desktop and choose Unlocker. If the icon is used by a process or it's locked, a window will appear telling you that. In either case, select Unlock then Delete and wait for the software to delete the icon. If it asks for a restart, you should perform one.
