Default Can't get rid of icons

I have 5 new icons on my desktop that I can't get rid of. I'm not sure where they came from, but when I click on properties, it says they are internet shortcuts. I have tried right clicking and deleting and they are deleted, but come back a few seconds later.I have run adaware, but they're still there, any other suggestions?

go to this url http://www.webattack.com/download/dlxcleaner.shtml
download the x-cleaner software
>> under the cleaning tab check the first 3 entries and start cleaning
>> if it shows u some dangerous programs, clean them
>> now try to delete the files
>> let me know if it works

you could have anything from Instant Access, witch means deleting it in the RegEdt, or just a simple icon creator, witch means finding it and deleting it
