Unwanted desktop shortcut..!

Please help,
I've had enough of this little problem. I keep getting a shortcut on my desktop, labeled internet security suite. This directs me to a Zone Alarm Security Suite advert.
How can I get rid of this low and cheap kind of advertising?
I run AVG along with my XP security software with no other problems.
I also run Adaware and Spybot regularly and they didn't spot this abuse.
Thanks in advance, Your thoughts will be welcome.

Right click on the shortcut and Delete it.

I've been right clicking and deleting it. I'm worried that there is adware that I'm not detecting.

Since I put my security on high This problem hasn't appeared again.
