Have you recently changed, removed, or deleted any other icons off your desktop? If so, this icon may always have been on your desktop, but hidden under others, or off the screen, and only appeared when space was available, (yeah I know, I'm clutching at straws, ).
Or have you changed the setting in Display Properties, (Start > Settings > Display Properties), under the Desktop tab, then Customise desktop, to the "Run Desktop Cleanup WIzard every 60 days", option?
Do you have MS Works on your computer at all, eg in Start > Programs, (or All Programs). If so, is there an MS Works Calendar shortcut there?
What happens if you open the Works Calendar. Can you set it's options to not start on start-up?

When I started my PC this morning I discovered a new icon on my desktop: MS Works Calendar. I have never used this calendar and didn't even know it existed.
It is running in the background and I want to disable it but can't find out how to do this. It is not in Add/Remove Programs, or Windows Set-up components. When I right click & select properties it was created on 11/9/99, and modified on 11/30/04. I didn't modify it.
I couldn't find anything in Microsoft Knowledge Base.
Wondering how it got installed or whatever, and how to disable it. Any help will be appreciated.
