Homegroup icon randomly appeared on my desktop - virus?
I logged into my laptop not long ago and noticed that there was an icon named 'Homegroup' sitting on my desktop out of the blue. I also noticed that it took longer than usual for all the icons on my desktop to appear. I haven't downloaded anything for
any icon to appear on my desktop. The icon is a green ball surrounded by 3 smaller blue balls swirling around it. I can't move the icon around my desktop, can't delete and can't move it to the Recycle Bin. When I right click on it, I get a menu that reads:
Change Homegroup settings
View the Homegroup password
Start the Homegroup troubleshooter
Share with devices
No option to delete or anything. I've never seen the icon before so curious as to how it appeared and whether it's potentially dangerous.
Any help with this would be appreciated.
