Hi, I dont know if this is the right forum for this or not. If not maybe someone can direct me to the correct one. I am not a novice with computers but I am far from an expert. I noticed several days ago that I had a new icon on my desktop. It is labeled update.dll, CallBack. I didn't put it on my computer and dont know what it is. Can anyone tell me where this came from and what its purpose is? Do I need to get rid of it. I would appreciate any help that someone could give me Thanks.

Well vijay1963, I'm sorry that my contribution isn't good enough for you. If you'd like, I'll send someone over to your house to hold your hand while it's being fixed.
