Rouge desktop icons

  noldi 10:08 02 Jan 2005

I have a problem that I have desktop icons added on my desk top and favoits in internet explorer this also changes my home page. I have recently had my C drive attacked and wipped after this I installed all the latest Norton Security. My daughter uses MSN Mesenger and that has access. These icons you can not delete or remove the favorits, the only way is to set my system back to before this started. Other info is the home page it sets is and the icons are for travel and gambeling sites, these do not show up in the desktop folder. also windows XP.

Download and run Ad-aware, hopefully it will be able to remove these icons and any underlying programs. click here

Cheers I have used Ad Aware before but I thought the latest Norton would have blocked anything like that it worries me that this stuff can get in. Cheers I think that has solved it for me.
