automatically installed desktop shortcut on Windows 7 pro suddenly called Mottzilla. Have I been hacked?


I am using Firefox 19, upgraded on 20 February. It appeared automatically to install a desktop shortcut, which I have just noticed is called MoTTzilla . The only Mottzilla I see on a quick scan is a gaming company.

Is this a hack? or virus? If I right click and open file it leads to Mozilla program files, but I'm not sure where to look to find something inappropriate.

Hope you don't mind, but the browser blocked the troubleshooting software and in my present state of paranoia, I didn't install!
