Are you interested in Darts, or NASCAR?

The only dasubmit that I could find is in this link - click here

Is it a regular icon or a shortcut?

If it's a shortcut what is the target?

Have you installed any new software (or hardware) recently?

Can you upload a snapshot of the actual icon on your desktop to your webspace so we can see it?

Do you use AV software?

What are the brackets after the word dasubmit?

Cheers

forget-me-not,thanks for the response and to jazzypop.Its a shortcut I have opend it and found that it shows everything on my computer it says that it is an attachment.also it says it is a java script.

Apologies for the delay - I have been unavailable for a few days.

There is no good reason to have such a shortcut placed on your desktop. Delete it, and empty your Recycle Bin.

Then make sure that your anti-virus software is up to date. Finally, download and run AdAware and Spywareblaster to ensure your PC is not harbouring any unwanted guests.
