Can anyone tell me why i get a new icon with test written below it on my desk top everytime i start up ? Ive got a toshiba lappy running XP with a pentium 4 thing. I delete it and empty the bin but it comes back of its own accord it seems.

Right click the icon, and go to properties and look for target which will give you the file path, then you can trace it back to its source.

Do not be tempted to click on the icon just in case it is malicious!

If you go to start\run type MSCONFIG Startup tab look for a box with the name or does not look right and remove the tick. you can restore it if you need to also at restart tick the little box that comes up then press ok
