Maybe it's coming from a P2P program? I know Bearshare will stick one on the Desktop.

If you mean what i think you mean, by deleting the incomplete folder you want to know if it will do anything...well i guess we'll both find out coz i just deleted the folder..so i guess it wont?

But if you are still using limewire then it might just come back, because even tho you arent using the folder..limewire is..so.. is that what you mean?
If not sorry..
