Recently, my computer has been adding some file called "msv0.dll" to my desktop every time I open internet explorer. I have no idea why it does it and it really is an eye sore to have on my desktop. I tried to delete it through the recycle bin, I've tried looking for a program that might be the source of it and I've run clean-up a few times and Ad-aware in safe mode as well and I can't seem to get rid of it. I opened "msv0.dll" in notpad and it says:

I really don't know what to do here because it keeps popping up on my desktop and it won't go away. Anything to get this crummy thing off my desktop will be appreciated. Thank you in advance!
