I keep getting loads of random updater icons appearing on my desktop, (see picture) if i don't do anything it just keeps going and fills the screen, all i can do is delete them but then next time they appear again. Does anyone know how to stop them? I've tried safe boot as that would a suggestion when i googled it but that didn't work.

I've also checked safari extensions and ran malwarebytes free version but had no effect.

Any help would be greatly appreciated
