hi i'm new here so sorry if i'm posting in the wrong forum.

Today when I logged onto my computer i was bestranged to find 2 icons on my desktop linked to pornography websites i wouldn't dream of going to.

Anyway i deleted the desktop icons via the recycling bin however as soon as they got deleted they reapeared again and won't go away.

I believe i have a malware virus i'm guessing as i keep getting critical system warnings and every 10 minutes or so the screen turns blue and warns me that there is viscious stuff on my computer.

I have run Norton however it comes up with nothing so I tried AVG and got the same result.

Could anyone please help me get rid of this please?
