I am completely new to this great piece of software: Symantec Workspace Virtualization 7.5
I am using it at home, just for private use. No Streaming, no servers, no big projects, just for keeping my Windows system as clean as possible.
After having virtualized a few applications (on a system I just set up a few days ago) I noticed a - for me - strange behavior of my system: a shortcut, named VZROCK.LNK appears at irregular intervals on my desktop, in the StartMenu or in active folders. It links always to itself, i.e. "C:\Users\Public\Desktop" or "C:\Users\%USERNAME%\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu". So it's sized 0 bytes at all. In almost split seconds it disappears again. It's even hard to get to properties-Tab in that short time.
I haven't found a way to reproduce it, yet. It doesn't seem to be affected by showing or hiding "hidden"- or "system"-flagged elements. In fact I am not sure whether this has anything to do with SWV at least. I just thought it might have something to do with SWV, because the running Symantec Services are named VzService.exe and vzUser.exe - both with VZ in the name...
- Is this a known effect on a definite application, for example?
- Shall I concern about? Or is it a regular behavior?
Of course I asked my friend google, but there were only one forum entry (http://www.murc.ws/showthread.php?72805-shortcut-vzrock-appears-on-desktop-during-firefox-operations). At least quite actual!
I have a second system set up with nearly the same virtualized applications. Yet, I couldn't notice the same behavior there.
Malware scan with Outpost Security Suite 9 is negative...
Does anyone have an idea?
Thanks a lot and best regards,
