how to remove firefox setup3.6.8exe which did not complete downloading? Icon remains as broken file
Began download of firefox setup 3.6.8 exe. It stopped, did not complete. Icon remains on desktop as "3.6.8.exe Part, Broken File. Cannot uninstall and clear it. Can delete the icon, then it reappears when computer reboots. How can I remove the partially installed setup file? And get rid of the icon?

Try this to delete the file:
- Open the Task Manager (XP:Ctrl+Alt+Del; Vista/Win7:Shift+Ctrl+ESC) and go to the "Processes" tab.
- In the Process tab, right-click on the Explorer.exe process and select "End Process".
- In Task Manager, use: "File > New Task > Browse" and browse to the folder containing the file and delete the file via the right-click context menu.
- Start a new explorer process via " File > New Task (Run)": explorer.exe
