Unknown File

Ok techy minded people.

I came home from work this afternoon to be told my OH had been browsing his normal websites, and now we have a file on the desktop called "unknown" Its a X-Rated file - OH decided to open it....

I've run Spybot, Ad-aware and my Anti-Virus things and they find nothing. A simple delete will not remove the file either.

Any advice appreciated!!

If the file will not delete then it could be in use. Press CNTL+ALT+DEL to bring up task manager and see if it (or anything unusual) is running, if so, select it and click End Process. If not then you can reboot in safe mode (press F8 when booting) and then delete it as normal.

Tried Safe Mode earlier - won't delete. CTL ALT DEL doesnt bring up anything that I can't recognize
