Malware? or what? [Solved]

Post by sdcougar » Sat Feb 17, 2018 2:00 pm

I have a new folder that showed up on my desktop, labeled 'Network' with pic of plug and plug in. When you open it it shows the same folder labeled "Windows Network"

The 'delete' button is not highlighted/does not work for either the desktop folder or the folder within the folder. Properties shows nothing.
