Unwanted Desktop Icons Spyware

  Stevie07 22:34 31 Dec 04

Some icons have appeared on my sons desktop. They do not respond to right click and do not show themselves in the desktop folder.

I presume this is spyware/adware, but McAfee, Spybot, Adaware, A2 have not removed them.

Hi, you don't say what OS? But, have you tried a System Restore to an earlier date? Might do the trick. Cheers.

Me again - before you try the System Restore -
go to SpywareNuker.com download/instal CW Shredder, this should get rid of unwanted icons.

Happy New Year.
