I ran Disk Defragmenter in hopes of speeding up my laptop a little. Out of the 31% folder fragmentation, only 1% was fixed. All the fragmentation is in just 1 file. I thought I would find the folder and delete it myself, but the file is found nowhere in the system. Searching can't find it, showing hidden files/folders can't find it, and this 1 folder is taking up a lot of memory. The folder's named "Limheros" and its in the program files(according to the disk defragmenter analysis), but I have no idea what it is. Does anyone know how I can find/remove this folder or maybe tell me what it is? Any help would be much appreciated.

Couldn't find it with a google - and I'd say that that was a bad thing!

Try this free, online scan of your system (requires Internet Explorer): http://housecall.trendmicro.com/

Generally, "badware" isn't well documented on the web. And most "goodware" has at least some sort of web presence.

So, the absence of any results when searching for it makes it suspect. A good scan should tell you for sure.
My browser caused a flood of traffic, sio my IP address was banned. Hope to fix it soon. Will get back to posting as soon as Im able.
