hi,windows XP, one of the grankids has clicked something in a music folder, and we have landed up with about 40 folders all over the desktop, they look like a sheet of paper with the corner folded over and a icon in the middle with a blue border, thet will not delete, i highlight them, click delete, i get the "sure you want to delete" thingy, click "yes" and they just land up back on the desktop, can someone help..thanks

thanks all, the last thing i ever thought of was a virus, we don't have Kazza, i tried the online scanner, but it would not download, i used system restore. the folders have gone...best to keep kids off PC's...............
