    This is most likely a web page link which you accidentally saved to your desktop.
    To test just press it.
    Press and hold, get the jiggle and press the x to delete.

    Same happens to me now and then.Assume you are jailbroken? A reboot should fix that.

    I find this usually to happen after doing some jailbreaky stuff to Springboard, wether it's hiding an icon or installing a new Cydia app. You can easily respring instead of reboot instead, which I recommend because it's much quicker.
