Windows XP removes shotcuts

I have a Windows XP machine. When clicking or double clicking on a desktop icon Windows always asks to remove the shortcut or item. I can start programs only from the start menu. But when I start the explorer and click on a folder the same question comes up to erase the folder.
It is impossible to close the question window. I have checked for virusses (AVG) and others stuff (Spybot search and destroy) and the system is complettely clean.
Does somehave have any suggestions?

Problem is solved. It was a hardware problem with the keyboard. Seems the DEL key was stucked. After replacing the keyboard everything was OK.
What happens if you create a new shorcut and try to double click?
