I believe it was "left over" and if he refreshed the desktop (F5 or Right Click, Refresh) it would have gone away. It's not necessarily something bad such as malware or a virus.

A program terminated improperly and left that display window in video memory so it kept on displaying. It happens occasionally, not nearly as often as it used to.

Ignore it unless it comes back.

I agree, I have had icons get stuck/hung like that before and performing one of those actions usually fix it. I would say definitely not a virus or malware myself

Reboot and see if it fixes it.
Or you could read above and see that he already fixed it by logging off and back on again :D
