A folder %System Drive% has mysteriously appeared on my desktop. It doesn't seem to be harming anything. Can I delete it or do I need to do something to get rid of it?

OS is Windows 2000

By right clicking on it and scrolling to Properties you can determine if it is empty or not.
It is probably the by product of a corrupt install or deletion of some file.
You can do a System restore to a date prior to its appearamnce and it will probably be gone. OR
You can send the folder to the recycle bin and in a few days if all is well leave it or restore it back if needed.
