Is this Malware?

My OS is windows 7 and I found an icon sitting on my desktop.  A click on the properties reveal that it is at : "C:\Program Files\Free Offers from Freeze.com\6840.url", but when I try to go to Control Panel to uninstall this item whatever it is, I cannot find its listing in the control panel, but it is in my C drive.  How do I get rid of this as it gives me the creeps what it might do next. thank u.

If Freeze is actually installed, you likely have a Programs entry for MyWebSearch and possibly MyFreeze. It is intrusive adware that MBAM will effectively remove.
