    Recently, when I started my laptop there was an shortcut on desktop named "Your Game.exe". I thought some app may created it and remove it. But again after I restarted the system next day it came back. I tried many ways to remove it. Biu it's coming back and back again.
    Is it is a virus or some othere malicious program. How I remove it.
    Plz Help!!!

    Its a Virus For sure.
    Use malware bytes, microsoft security essential or avast antivirus to get rid of it or just any other decent AV which you think suitable.

    @Rishab2oo, try Emsisoft Anti-Malware 6.0 if other antivirus failed to disinfect your PC. but Emsisoft needs latest service pack else installation will fail.

    I had installed Angry Birds from a digit DVD. I didn't thought that it is creating that file. Mostly I play Angry Birds just after starting my system that's why I thought the file is creating itself.
