Every couple of days my desktop suddenly fills with icons which all relate to items in My Documents folder. They don't do any harm but I can't find the icons that should be there, they are getting pushed about.
The only way I can get out of it is to do a system restore, which is a nuisance and a time waster anyway.
If I boot up in safe mode the icons are smaller but there are even more of them!
Thanks for trying, buteman.
I downloaded malwarebytes and did a scan which claimed to have discovered 23 infected files (all Adware) and then I deleted them.
Upon reboot the unwanted icons all re-appeared so I am afraid that malwarebytes was not the answer. The items to tick were already ticked.
