Malware?

Have you checked for malware (i.e. ran your AV program)?

Hello Kevin, and welcome to Seven Forums.

You might see if using OPTION TWO in the tutorial below to restore the default location of your "My Documents" folder may help in case this may be the issue.

User Folders - Restore Default Location

Hope this helps,

no it's not a default document folder, i fixed it last time, i already restored it to the default location but now this is just an ordinary folder and it doesn't have default location

Do you have any program installed that may be set to save into a Documents folder in your Downloads folder?

Double check to make sure that this Documents folder is set to not be shared with anyone.

If all fails, then you might see if using Unlocker to delete it may get rid of it for good.

I can't remember who now since I blinked since then.

You should be able to do it using a gif (Brink's Avatar is a gif).
You can use GIMP or Photoshop to make gif files.

Something like this?
Sorry they are a bit rough.

They still need more frames and timing adjustments.

Back to the topic
Are you using some sort of Download Manager, KevinStorm?
I used one (years ago) that created "category" folders in my Download location.
