Whats up guys its me again I ran some scans with spybot and my antivirus spybot caught some stuff deleted it and my antivirus came up with nothing which I think is garbage.

I have this file called Thumbs and it takes the appearance of a hidden file with the icone of a .bat that keeps recreating itself all over my freakin comp hah. Everytime I go to delete the sucker it comes right back what should I do?

The file that you refer to is used to cache thumbnails of every media file you have opened so that they can be opened quickly. it isn't a risk its just handy storage place. if you want to get rid of it anyway, you will have to stop the system from caching thumbnails.

1. Click Start
2. Double-click Control Panel
3. Double-click Folder Options
4. Click on the View tab
5. Check off the circle next to Do not cache thumbnails
6. Click the Ok button

Hope this helps
