Hey there, Eyesee. I noticed it the same day that I posted it. However, this is now a moot point as I've wiped my hard drive and done a fresh install of Windows 7 Ultimate.
I was using the free ZoneAlarm firewall, with Panda Cloud 1.5 as my anti-virus. I had also run an RKill and then done a Malwarebytes full scan, after updating. I keep pretty decent tabs on my computer, and don't believe it was infected, although it's certainly possible.
As I said, I've moved on to Windows 7, so I apologize for wasting your time. I had just never seen anything like it and wanted to see if anyone here had had a similar experience. I did end up deleting both the objects before I reformatted and they were successfully removed with no negative effects.
Thanks for your time, let me know if you have any thoughts or questions. If not, feel free to close this down. Thanks!
