BOB25, type desktop icons into the search box top left and scroll down to the one you want and that will tell you how to get rid.Paddy

have you tried going to control panel, add/remove programs and removing anything that looks suspicious?

my daughter was on this machine last night and a poker shortcut appeared on the desktop (yahoo or msn probably the culprit) - I removed it using the above
