 Deleting a Desktop shortcut ... remotely

Ok, just some clarifications...

If all the machines in which you need to delete a desktpo shorcut are NT, ok, there are absolutely no problem.
Install ADSI in the machine that perform the task.
Now, suppose taht i need to delete the file C:\Strange\Rainbow.lnk in the machine CompName...

1)Create a program that, with ADSI, make a share to the drive where the shortcut is (C:), call it with the "$" as end character (this make invisible the share to the user) (C$)
  Set objComputer = GetObject("WinNT://CompName/LanmanServer")
  Set objShare = objComputer.Create("FileShare", "C$")
  objShare.path = "C:\"

2)When you call objFileSystem.DeleteFile, use this sintax:
 objFileSystem.DeleteFile "\\CompName\c$\Strange\Rainbow.lnk")

3)Remove the share
  Set objComputer = GetObject("WinNT://CompName/LanmanServer")
  objComputer.Delete "FileShare", "C$"

4)Watch how easy is this program...

The real problem append when you need to do this on 95/98 machine, because them don't support the creation of file share with ADSI (i think, someone can deny me...), so or in all the machines exists
the C$ condivision or... I don't know... :(( Sorry
