    Unwanted shortcuts appear on Desktop after booting.

    Every time I boot up I see some unwanted shortcuts spread over the desktop. That is once Log in then I see these shortcuts. I have tried deleting them but it reappears the next time I boot. I even emptied the Recycle Bin but all in vein. How do I get rid of these unwanted shortcuts?

    dear friend,

    You can manually prevent your computer from unwanted shortcut icons icons after every start up.

    • Click on the Start button.
    • Type Run in the search box & click on the option appeared.
    • It'll open the Run window.
    • You may also open it by pressing Windows key+R button together.
    • Type msconfig in the edit field & press enter-system configuration dialog box will appear.
    • Click on the Startup tab & uncheck all the programs which are forcibly creating shortcuts on your computer.
    • Click on Apply+OK to save changes & reboot your computer.
    If you face the same problem again then it must be a virus problem.

    Install & run a good quality, genuine & full version of an antivirus (having anti malware & anti spyware feature) on your computer.

    Scan your full system for infected files.

    Click on the infected files scanned by the computer & delete permanently all of these.

    Hiiiiiiiiii
    this files or icons will be present not only in desktop but also in your local disks if your system is infected with virus or malware etc.,
    to delete or remove these virus from your system you need to install the antivirus and check whether the antivirus is running properly then
    scan your whole system,better way is to boot scan because the scanning starts when your system is in sleep mode thus virus can be deleted easily rather than normal mode.
    Thank You

    Hello friends.............

    Don't worry about this it is not the problem with your system hardware this type of shortcuts appear when your computer was infected
    with virus or any malware
    To remove the virus you just install the anti-virus software
    and scan your computer and delete all the files which were
    detected by the anti virus soft-ware

    Even if they are not deleted these files may present in your local disk only so it will be better to search these files in the search option
    u may find these files in your computer itself

    have a good day
