The below has appared on my desktop opened in Notepad and I can't get rid of it. It looks rather like a Trojan that is on the Symantec latest warning list but is not the same. I have done a full Norton scan but it doesn't show anything. Has anyone got any ideas please



[.ShellClassInfo]
LocalizedResourceName=@%SystemRoot%\system32\shell32.dll,-21787

I typed it into google and came up with this: click here

I don't think it's anything nasty.

Sorry, I should have also said scroll down to Favorites

Thanks to you both for the advice.
I'll do a scan but having looked at the site mentioned by Valvegrid it doesn't look as if it's anything unpleasant

Further to both messages I have carried out the scan and there is no Trojan
