Zynga Internet Shortcut wont delete, reappears on restart

Just bought a new computer and it came with a zynga shortcut on the desktop and pinned to the taskbar. I have deleted it multiple times but every time the computer is restarted it is back. I tried to open the file location but it says its on the internet.

How do i get rid of this?

There is likely an app running that looks for that shortcut and replaces it if missing. A quick Google shows it has to do with games. Have a look in your add-remove programs for the software and un-install it if you don't want it or never plan on using it. It sounds like its just part of the crap ware installed by the manufacturer.

Had a look around and found it was from a smartview program that came with the computer.
Uninstalled it and its gone.

Fill out your system specs so we know what kind of computer you have. Has this always been a problem, or did it recently start? What software have you installed lately?

I have updated my Spec - Think the software come with something to do with the driver software from the Motherboard. I don't have Smart View on my system so it must have took another route possibly?
