Hello there, could you elaborate your issue a little bit more?

What kind of files are appearing on the desktop? could you provide us a Screenshot? Please, upload it via the paperclip button that's next to the smiley face.

At this moment i've just del all of the files for the 5ft time.

They are png files, hundreds of then. I delet all the files and after 30min-1h they all come back to the desktop.

Ok, could you upload a screenshot with the files on the desktop? to get a better idea of what the problem could be.

In the meantime i'd suggest you scan your computer for malware.

Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware: Malwarebytes

Download, install, boot into safe mode with networking (F8 on BIOS before startup) and perform a full scan.

Post back with your results.

The problem started when i use a aplication to convert dwf file into dwg (DWF to DWG Converter, DWFIN, DWF Recovery Software Download). I've been using it and this is the first time this happend.

So, the last time it happend I've deleted all png files and unistaled the software...at this moment, no more png files keep coming to my desktop...i think is solved.

I'm using kapersky ( i think has no malware protection)...do you think it's a good idea to combine with Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware: Malwarebytes?

You can use Malwarebytes' Anti Malware as an "On-Demand" scanner only. it doesn't interfere with Kaspersky.

The paid version has the real time protection option, the free one doesn't. so the free one should work just fine for you.

I wouldn't say it's vital to have it. but better safe than sorry
