Corrupt File keeps on appearing on Desktop RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have a Laptop running Windows 7, and at one stage tried to download a VLC movie clip, but the file got corrupted, and no content was downloaded. Now the file keeps on trying to download itself, always just the file and file name, with no content. It keeps on filling my desktop with the same shortcut. Is there a way for me to stop this file trying to download itself? Or is it something on my computer that is duplicating the shortcut?

  • Hi,

    Which tool do you use to download your file?

    If you are using third party tool, you can cancel your download task, if you are using Internet Explorer, try to view the downloads to check if you stop this task or not.
