cannot delete font file off desktop

Posted: 07-03-2008, 02:34 PM
I made the mistake of transferring a font to my desktop to install. It says
that the font file is not a valid font file. But now I can not delete,
rename, or move this file (Script MT Bold.ttf). I had two other fonts on the
desktop, but was able to delete them after taking ownership of the protected
file and then assigning rights.

Thank you
