I'm posting this question for my brother who is a computer-noob.
Somehow his laptop running XP seems to have been infected by a virus, although Norman AV does not find a virus.
Problem: everytime he doubleclicks on an icon this seems to be interpreted as a delete command. He gets a question "Do you really want to move this file/shortcut to the recycle bin" Answering No does not close the window. This also happens when he opens outlook (via mouse-menu open option) on downloades messages, double click within outlook on a message deletes the message instead of opening it.
Does anybody know a virus that can cause this behaviour?
