I am simply curious, I have a friend with a computer that has a ton of worms, viruses, spyware, etc etc and etc again. I performed a fresh install to keep things simple, but one of the issues he was having that I encountered was interesting. Every time you clicked on his shortcut to open internet explorer, rather than opening internet explorer(nothing opened), the shortcut would multiply into 3 internet explorer shortcuts. So, you start with one shortcut and attempt to opena dn now you have 3. And this would occur every single time you clicked on it. Is this a worm or virsus that is known or common? I think he must have been surfing some smut or something to get one like this lol. Please let me know if you have a specific answer. Thanks
By the way, I ran an updated version of AVG adn got no fix. I removed that and ran Avast and got now fix. Same for Rogue scan fix, and spybot search and destroy.
