According to http://www.macfixit.com/archives/april.00.c.shtml <http://www.macfixit.com/archives/april.00.c.shtml>  the .wbz file extension is for a program called Webshots desktop lite.  Below is the description of what the program is:
 
 <http://download.cnet.com/downloads/0-10238-100-1727647.html> Webshots Desktop Lite 1.0 allows you to place an image on your desktop automatically by selecting from thousands of full-screen color images in categories such as sports, scenery, wildlife, travel, 3D, and more. This has been a popular PC utility, now ported to the Mac.

Have you tried to scan the file yet with an up-to-date virus scanner?

Are/Were you running any sort of 'skin' program?  I think .wbz is a 
compressed "Window Blinds" file.

when i booted up today 2 files were on the desktop. both had a 
.wbz 
extention. properties were 'photo' but nothing would open the program. my 
guess is a remote snapshot spy prog. i ran adaware (i know...) all it 
returned was comet cursor (removed) . i went to a site with every known file 
extension found at: 

http://members.tripod.com/ellur/file_formats.htm <http://members.tripod.com/ellur/file_formats.htm>  

but this .wbz was not listed. 
any clues ???? i deleted the 2 files but kept my notes. could not determine 
the origin of either.
