    Spam icons on desktop (Win XP)

    I keep getting These 4 icons that appear on my desktop. They wont go away even after deleting them from my recycle bin. Is there any way to keep them from re-appearing? Please respond!
    I am going to try to attach a screen shot that was cut down to decrease the size, but it still shows the 4 icons.

    Download either or both of Spybot Search and Destroy and Adaware. They can find and isolate malicious programs.

    Further to the post about Ad-Aware. this thread seems to be the same problem you are having with SPYWARE icons: http://www.lavasoftsupport.com/index.php?a...;t=5773&hl=

    You might want to downlaod HIjackthis at http://www.tomcoyote.com.

    If you go to the Ad-aware forum site they will ask to post your logfile from Ad-aware 6, instrucitons are contained in the forum. The free version works very well.

    Other complimentary software (free) is: SpyBlaster and IE-SPYADSs
