Ok sorry if this is not the right thread but I really couldn't find better..

I don't really use the my documents folder or however it is classified, but for the first time I see a folder in my documents called my webs

within it, there's an empty folder called _private another empty folder called _vti_cnf a folder named _vti_pvt with files: botinfs, bots, fpdbw.ico, service, service.lck and services
another empty folder images
and a desktop.ini file with this content
InfoTip=Stores your local web site

The reason why I posted here is because there's a 1% in me that thinks this files were implemented by a hacker :thumbsup:

Could anyone tell me any info about this folder?

desktop.ini _vti_cnf and _vti_pvt were hidden files
