On my Vista PC the Firefox shortcut icon is being randomly renamed. The name changes to some variation of a recently visited URL. This unwanted action has survived several version updates. Of course I suspect a possible malware issue but as an IT professional I have tested many AV/AntiMalware programs on this PC over time which have not found any issues. I have also tried a variety of related file attrib changes without success. As this is an administrative PC I hate to to think that it might be spreading a well hidden malware instance, perhaps more damaging than just this nuisance symptom. Any thoughts?
PS Appreciate the lucid and practical information presented on this site. Well done.
