I have been on the net and while on had a number of icons posted to my desktop including Bingo,Travel,cardgames,poker, webhosting.

I right click but nothing happens so cannot delete.


How can I delete these icons from my desktop?

Go to click here and download, install and run Spybot.

You Could also Right Click your Desktop, Click Properties, Desktop, Customise Desktop and clear them to a folder.

but I think County123 wants to get rid of them completely. Mr Mistoffelees has suggested running Spybot because there may be a virus or hijacker involved with the Icons.

Anything that can't be cleared off the desktop with a right click option needs looking at just in case. :o(

Totally concur. Just offering another option. :o)

Downloaded Spybot - deleted many spyware files. However still have the icons on my desktop and can't get rid of them. Any other ideas?
