Exactly what icons? When did they appear? Icons should not just pop up unless you copied them there or installed a virus or spyware that added them.
They are icons from programs that used to be on my computer. I have long since deleted the programs and all of the software, etc. They are Yahoo Messenger, Aim Messenger, My Dream Wedding (which was a product from my Incredimail)
Most of my active icons have inactive clone icons. My computer still works like it did, but these icons won't move. I have searched in my registry for each one of them and there are no matches or traces of them.
I have since tried my CCleaner, Spybot, AVG, and everything I can think of. When I go to Safe Mode, they are not on my desktop. Everything is normal. I cannot imagine how this happened, but surely would like to get rid of them.
