Unusual appeareances of Desktop Lock and Virtual Screen icons

Copper Contributor

I am administrating a Win server 2016  running for  7 month now.  Recently, in the last 10 days or so, a number of icons and folders are appearing on my Administrator desktop. They are also appearign on users desktops.


Our users claimed not to have any part in installing these apps.  I have no way to validate if this is true or not. 


This is a virtual server and all access is u sing RDS


Pleases, may anyone here recognize this icons and feedback?  I am looking online but can not find anything about them.

Have you check for any certificates for the files following the shortcut properties. You could also check gather the file hashes and do a search for any know malware.
