I've got nothing that's called 'network adapter' showing on my desktop. It's not standard Windows. So it must be something you put there yourself. What is it, what does it point to, why did you put that shortcut on your desktop?

And is the file the shortcut (if it's shortcut) points to exist, or is it an error message given when you actually run that file.
