View Full Version : Double-click icon tries ro delete it

07-10-2003, 12:45 PM
I have a friend with a new PC with XP Pro installed. After logon, if he double-clicks a desktop icon (any icon, I think), the application starts (eventually), but he also gets the dialog "deleting the icon does not delete the application" etc. Clicking the cancel button has no effect! The dialog box stays active until the button has been clicked many times, then it goes away. After that, double-clicking show normal behaviour. Clicking the delete button deletes the shortcut, but the dialog stays active as above.

We've tried uninstalling/reinstalling the mouse (Logitech wheelmouse) and also using a different mouse, so I don't think it is that.

Weird, eh?

Any ideas?
