Web urls showing up on desktop

I seem to continuously get the same 5 html shortcuts posted to my desktop after I launch IE 6.0. I have tried deleting the shortcuts, and have run ad-aware, spy-bot destroyer, cleared histories, temp file, etc.

I also have my pop-up blockers activited from both IE (yahoo toolbar) and System mechanic 4 and they still appear.

The only thing that I get when I review the properties is the URL of the shortcut is as follows:

Whoah - ya. We dont want those links here.

Would appreciate suggestions or assistance.
