That is definitely not normal. Have you done virus and spyware scans recently?

Go into safe mode & run all your scans again. I used to have a similar problem, and it was a spyware which acted as a Windows folder, the litle bugger. But I got rid of it with SpyBOT Search & Destroy via safe mode :)

There's a few bug removal tools in my signature link below - take what you need, the best at the moment IMO are Windows Defender, Spybot S&D and AdAware SE with CC Cleaner cleaning out the cra* from windows and your registry.

Also try the Trend online scan.

Good luck with the spring clean.

Also, if you run XP - flush the restore cache as the lil' bug maybe residing safely in here undetectable to any scanner!

To flush - turn restore off then on - this deletes all restore points!

Boot your machine back up in safe mode (F8 at boot) and see if you can remove them now.

That link - http://www.neowin.net/forum/index.php?s. - only goes to a forum's index page - which link within this page are you referring to, not too clear.

try the reg cleaner in CC Cleaner - it may pick up unused/uneeded entries.
