    Sorry. Please go back to square one........
    Unpin the new tile > uninstall the program.
    Wait for some one with the answer.

    Ok you have 2 choices that might work, Download a program called Everything its a free app. http://www.voidtools.com/ then type in the name of this program tile, or at least a main word phrase. (you never told us the name of this app) and see if everything can find ANY trace of this file on your computer. If it does, delete these traces. everything will look at every location for any name you put in to search for, this app is VERY good tool to keep in your "tool box" .

    The other choice would be to search for this file name in your registry, but please don't use this method, if you are not familiar with editing your registry. If you end up having to go in your registry, please make a image backup of your drive c first. incase you mess up your registry. I am hoping the everything program will find traces of your app that's leaving its tile on your desktop.

    Mike your the man, Search Everything did the trick, it found 3 files of the program in c: windows/prefetch so i deleted them and the tile was removed. Cheers, i'll keep this program handy. Thanks everyone else who tried to help.

    VERY Glad that it helped you!!!! I've been using that app for last few years, matter of fact I running his latest BETA version, as it is better than the released version. Glad everything worked out for you!!
