hi, had my daughter on the phone, her two kids spend a lot of time on MSN, dont they all. anyway, she has on her C drive a lot of icons, the writing on them is in different colours, and they have, which she said, looks like the short cut arrow in the corner, i can not write on here what some of them say, but they are not nice, she has tried to delete them, but they just come back...anyone any ideas..

They could be anything Magik, tell her to download and install the usual, spybot, adaware, a-squared, etc and run.

If you've got broadband and a cd-rw, download and burn them to disk for her

Right click on the icons then click on properties, note where the file is stored. Delete them in windows explorer. I the error message 'the file is in use, ete' then CTRL+ALT+DEL and see if they are shown there. If so close them down from there and then go back and delete them and empty the recycle bin. Then it is just a simple job of deleteing the icons from the desktop.
