I'd need a lot more context on when and how you see this to even guess.

It has appeared twice- it shows up on my desktop as a small icon. I contacted Norton about it, and they checked in out. It did not appear to be a virus, but they said take note of what you are doing when it shows up.

My laptop is cheap- I got it for $125 for surfing the web, entering sweepstakes and checking on Facebook.
I am not concerned about it- I am curious if the picture is there because I hit a wrong button, or some sweepstakes put it there.

I'd delete it, and definitely not click on it.

Probably run something like Malwarebytes to check for bad stuff on your system.

I have had the same thing happen. I don't know if this is the same as your phantom picture, but mine was simply my not paying attention to what I was doing. I had created a short cut icon from a page I had visited. I just did a right click and delete, once I figured out what it was. Sometimes my own stupidity stuns me.
