Theirs a folder on the desktop its called "Programs" that gets created randomly or when i install something new but even though its still gets created with nothing in it. Im Running Vista ultimate everythings up to date using kaspersky internet security spybot SD, windows defender.
Not sure if anything slipped by these programs but this folder keeps coming back. I could Delete it then shut down or restart pc but when i log back in im the only user account with admin on this pc. Its back their again.I had a custume folder called PROGRAM CUTS ie. START>All Programs>PROGRAM CUTS this where i put all junk cuts like
FM station quick access junk but this folder got deleted dont know why but i never did it.Pokerstars folder is missing for this location to but nothing else.

Somethings funny on me system maybe registry related i think.

Hope you guys can help me out i already have hijackthis just tell me when to post the log.Hope you can save me from formatting.

Are there any empty folders in My Documents, also? If yes, delete it there and see if it comes back
