I've not seen that before. Is the icon on your desktop a shortcut? If you right click it and select Properties, does the Properties window show a shortcut tab?
If so, you can trace the program executable file by clicking "Find Target", then right click that and check its Version tab for more details.
If not a shortcut, then is it an executable file, eg .exe ?
Hello everyone - a new icon has appeared on my desktop, its legend says "windows placement" and as I peeked it, it identified itself as "windows registry editor, version 5.00". Does anyone know if this is malware of some sort, or if it is something genuine? In the latter case, what is it? TIA - Amos
