Weird Icon continually generated on desktop

Every time I log into my machine I have this icon on my desktop. I have a fresh install of windows 10 and this is the second time I have booted it up. I dont run any crazy weird software and only use this machine for work. I cant find anything online about it.

"xxxmyIconxxx3undefined" is what it is titled

when I open with notepad it says

when I change the file name to a png it looks like this:

how do I stop this thing from generating? or figure out what is generating it.

The ihdr code is corrupt... delete the file then run your system under a malware scanner.

p.s It's not normal to see any png_get_uint_32 in pngread.c code in a windows machine... does your workplace use a lot of (open source) linux?
