Right click on your desktop,click on Properties = Display Properties + Desktop + Customize Desktop + Clean Desktop Now this runs desktop cleanup wizard and from here you should be able to remove the offending icons!

if that doesnt work try dragging a box around them, holding the shift key and pressing delete.

failing that they have installed themselves as desktop items (as opposed to icons) which is what microsoft does for things like internet explorer etc.

You have been lopped. The only thing that will erase your problem is Lop Remover.

If you google for Lop Uninstaller or Lop Remover you may be able to find a download place. Now most will tell you that your security settings will not allow you in. If that happen to you I have a download link that will work for you. I won't post it here cos clicking it would start the DL straight off.

BTW, it's usually one of these dodgy messenger programmes (eg, msg plus) that has sticks this one on you.

have downloaded a lop remover and run the program but the items are still on the desktop so what next can be done

If you Google "bingo casino desktop icons" or similar you will find some help there probably.

Can't understand lop remover not fixing it though. You did reboot I suppose? Anyway, looks like a registry job - be careful. Good luck!

remove all Restoration points that have been created after the problem started to occur.

If you search this forum using the words "remove"
"pop-up" or "Trojan". You should find plenty of well founded help.

I have found a way to uninstall these items but when I try it says my security settings will not allow this to download the uninstall program.

How do you enable your security settings to get this program
