Have you downloaded anything from Brothersoft. like Filesee V6.30 for instance?

Hi no nothing downloaded only newer ver. of AD-Aware after this problem started.

I don't think it is a 'nasty' as such, but run click here in its default settings, ie - don't make any alterations, just run it.

thanks have tryed that but its still coming back..

  Newuser2173 15:55 30 Jan 2009

Have just noted it pops up on the desktop even when nothing is running ie i put it in the recycle bin after about 20sec it back on the desktop...

What version of IE are you using? Perhaps if you update to the latest this might get rid of it.

I have had a look on Google, not much help though, but no indication of anything 'Nasty'

How long has this icon been appearing on your desktop? Perhaps a System Restore back to before it started appearing might get rid of it.

Or - what if you put it in the Recycle Bin, and then empty the Recycle Bin.

Try System Restore in safe mode.
