    Quick Access Icon Gets Created on My Desktop After Installing Third Party Software

    After installing third part software, an desktop icon appears on my desktop with no way to delete it unless I uninstall the software.

    So far this occurs with Chrome (which I posted about this a week ago and haven't gotten a response, surprise) and Movies Collector.

    I would mind so much but there is no way to delete it. There is no delete option in the right click menu.

    Any ideas?
