Unwanted Icons

Everytime I choose Internet Update, I get two icons
downloaded to my desktop:-$50 Bonus- ING DIRECT.url and
Great Offers from Bank One.url.

I do not want these icons on my desktop, but when I
delete them, the very next time I update Microsort Money,
the icons reappear.

How can I disable this typical Microsoft annoyance?

For each version of Money that you run, check
Tools->Options->General->TurnOffSponsorshipsAndShoppingLinks or
Tools->Settings->ProgramSettings->TurnOffSponsorshipsAndShoppingLinks

I've never had this problem until today. Has anyone else
seen these desktop icons before today? I'm just trying
to figure out if the setting got turned back on somehow.
Thanks.


Money,

The same thing happened to me. I did not turn this setting on. It just
appeared. Some more Microsoft voodoo, if you ask me.
