    It would only be the name you were revealing not the contents. Apart from the name (which may be invalid somehow) the interesting letters are here in this line:

    A HR C:\Users\nori\desktop\regedit.lnk

    The A, H, R mean Archive, Hidden and Read Only. Yours may be different.

    You could also try to delete it from the same elevated command prompt - taking the same example:
    Code:
    del /f /a c:\Users\nori\desktop\regedit.lnk
    Replacing the path in red with what you want to delete.

    These last ones look wrong.

    What happens if you try to delete them manually from the command line - for example the last one
    Code:
    del %userprofile%\desktop\1456746_597374830367408_1861631489138766950_n.png
    What does it say? Is there an error message?

    Can you tell us the exact error message as I made a png with the exact same name and it deleted fine.

    Perhaps the name is OK but it certainly looks odd.

    I did tell you the error message exactly C:\Users\Home>del%userprofile%\desktop\1456746_597374830367408_1861631489138766950_n.pngThe filename, directory name, or volume label syntax is incorrect.

    Since we need to be exact, Meg, was there a space between "del" and "%userprofile%" or was it without the important space exactly as you posted above?
