When I click on my desktop items, a panel comes up saying '' Windows cannot find www.what ever the site is, Make sure you typed the name in correctly, and then try again. To search for a file, click start, then click search.
The only ones it brings up when I click on them is, my hotmail, Adaware and Spybot.
I have to go to My Favourites, which come up straight away.
I will most definately say you have spyware infections. Even though you have the one listed I suggest to run this free one:
Click link: http://www.smcus.net/SUPERAntiSpyware.exe. after it is done and delete your issues you may have to make another user account (click on picture next to your name in Start menue) and move your files over.
Hope this helps!

Assuming you are on Windows 10... if right click on the desktop in a place where there are no icons, you will get a menu.
If you are showing no icons on your screen at all, hover over the View option. A sub-menu will show. make sure that "Show Desktop Icons" is checked.
If you are trying to have the common desktop icons displayed of "Computer", "User Filed", "Network", etc...
the bottom entry on the menu says, "Personalize..."
Click on that, click on "Themes" on the left, click on "Desktop Icon Settings" on the right, then click the check box for every icon you want on the dialog that comes up, click Apply and OK as needed to exit the settings.
If you are on a different version of Windows, the instructions are very similar, you may have to scout around a bit to find how they work in an older version of Windows.
