I have aquired what I can only imagine has come from a POP UP. I have an ADULT_CHAT Icon on my desktop, and also on the start menu programmes. How can I remove it. MOOCHY

right click on it and delete it, if it comes back or you suspect it to go deeper than just a desktop icon look at your add/remove programs to see if anyhting has installed itself, if it still persists got to internet properties, general, temp internet files, settings, view objects and then right click everything in there to view its properties, anything you are unsure about delete it (this will not harm your PC even if you delete the wrong this as it is only browser plugins etc.)

Also run Adaware etc as a matter of course.
