    Hey guys, so i rebooted my computer today and these 2 files appeared on my desktop.
    They don't have any given name or location, and when I delete them, they come back if I refresh my screen.

    Oh, and by the way, every time I right click on them, only 3 things appear: "cut, create shortcut, delete".

    A temporary remedy :

    If you do create system restore points regularly....................
    Do a system restore. Pick a date when you did not have this problem as your restore point.
    System Restore Windows 10
