Default Folder Setting

Hello,

Can Any help with my problem..

I have XP sp2 and anti-virus 2004 (norton) with latest virus defination and adwares software installed.

One day I went to folder setting of explorer and click on show hidden files and folders. after doing that I saw a new folder in each drive..

" folder setting " and quickly scaned antivirus to check if it was virus and run adwares and spybot but couldnot detect any thing.

So i deleted that folder and shutdown and restarted and check it still it was there ....................B U T............. it was still there..

what is this ? and how to remover. Any idea????

Come On Guys Take it easy on him. Im the same way. When a folder or a file is on my computer and i want it gone and it wont go away i get pissed 2. Try setting it so that u can view hidden files in side. Also try to rename it then delete it and see if that helps at all.

True but if u cant just leave it or get a code to delete it on startup

like a.bat file script and put in your startup

del C:/file

add to text then convert from .txt to .bat
