Windows seven folder being auto created


Im using windows 7. Im 100% sure my computer is not infected. I have Norton Internet Security Installed.

Weird thing happening. Last time I had a folder called "parkvilla" in my desktop. I permanently deleted that folder from my desktop, but everytime i restart my computer, that folder is being auto created after startup. Its empty but auto created everytime when i restart my PC. any idea. Again im telling im aware of viruses such as NewFolder.exe etc. This is not that. this is a legit folder and my PC is not infected. I also checked my startup folder. There is nothing specious.

Any help?

Hi Sam20e

Lets have a look at the Startup tab inside msconfig . Click on the button type msconfig inside Search programs and files box and press <ENTER> . On the UAC window click on the Yes button . Inside the System Configuration window click on the Startup tab and post an image with your reply please .
