Ok, this is a weird one. With my old install of Windows 7 I had this mysterious "Toshiba drivers" folder spontaneously appear on my desktop. If I deleted it, it would always return, either within a few minutes or a few hours or a day and the folder was always empty. I tried to figure out where it was coming from, especially as I don't have any Toshiba hardware in my PC, but came up blank and googling didn't find anything on it, either. The only thing I could do was to set it to hidden and it's been like that for a good couple of years. My Windows install had become problematic, with lots of niggly things not working, so I've just installed a fresh copy on another drive and patched it. Everything was working fine, until I browsed the profile on my old Windows install to retrieve the files there. After allowing the permissions to be changed, I could open the Desktop folder and move the files over. And you guessed it, this bloody folder has now appeared on my new install! I deleted it and it returned within a few minutes. I deleted it again and it's still not shown up yet, but it will eventually. Now, besides being damned annoying, I wonder if there's some kind of malware doing this that browsing my old profile infected my new install? Note that I haven't installed Kasperky Internet Security yet. Perhaps if I had, it would have blocked this? I did run virus scans on the old install previously, using different security suites, but they never found anything. Any ideas on how to get rid of this once and for all?
