for a few months now and at unpredictable intervals, a link appears on my desktop with the name 'Sample.htm' It is always a link connected to my default browser (and I have changed that a few times) When I double click and open the browser, the content is always the same:
"This is an example of inserting reusable html blocks whenever you need them. They are easy and fun to use.

First highlight a block of text and click the F8 key (or select "Save Selection" from the Edit menu). You will be prompted for a filename. Type in something memorable and click save. It will now be listed in the insert snippet combo box for you to reuse at your cursor position."
I use AVG anti virus and have also run Spybot and Malwarebytes. Neither of them find anything wrong.
The link shown in the address bar when I open the browser is:file:///C:/Documents%20and%20Settings/Administrator/Desktop/Sample.htm
so it gives no clue to the origin of the file.
Has anyone any experience of this sort of thing and/or any ideas on how to get rid of it?
Best wishes
