Homegroup icon appeared on desktop

I noticed today that the Microsoft Hometeam icon suddenly showed up on my desktop, I opened it up and also reportedly it thaught I was part of a homegroup, I automatically removed myself from the "Group" and also checked my security settings and also disabled anything homegroup related.  My question is, did a Virus carry out this? I just completed a Norton360 shave the right to and also it detected and removed a Heuristic Virus, which after googling I uncovered that it suggests that it didn"t know what the virus was yet thought about it a threat?


What is the peril that someone has actually acquired into and viewed my files?  I likewise did a Search and Destroy shave the right to and also it only uncovered the usual low-grade hazards.  Btw the Heuristic uncover might be entirely unconcerned the Homegroup symbol appearing on my desktop, I checked the file and it thaught the Suvarium (Game) online update was a Trojan Virus.. go figure?
