    The new account I made also has the same issue.
    I am out of ideas.
    I apologize.
    Someone else will come along to help you.
    Good luck.

    Thank you for all your help so far. If I find no other solution I will do a backup and factory reset.

    Windows defender says everything is up to date, real time protection is on, and when I scanned it showed no issues.
    Windows defender can only do so much. This Trojan is insidious. Even after removing it, it still lurks somewhere creating a drive 3 and comes back with windows update. Your best bet is complete clean up. Microsoft store will do it for you free.

    Is there any way to do this myself at home? I have pretty good tech knowledge, I've worked in IT jobs previously, this so far is the only software issue I haven't been able to fix myself.

    I ended up doing a system restore, keeping my files but not my installed programs- this solved the issue.

    My computer also has that problem. I'm running a system scan, and I tried many things. I'm so tired now, can you please help?

    Do you use 2 monitors? See this thread:
    Solved Desktop Icons Have Disappeared - Windows 10 Forums

    Another idea on the 2nd page of that thread.
