Windows 7: Empty history Folder on C Drive

Empty history Folder on C Drive

Hi. Not sure where to post this.
I have noticed an empty History folder on my C drive that every time I delete it, it comes back when I reboot my computer. I don't ever remember seeing it there before. I have Windows 7 Home Premium SP1 64 Bit. I recently downloaded and installed the Comodo Ice Dragon browser, but have since uninstalled it as it seemed suspicious to me.
I have run various malware and virus scans and it shows nothing. Any clues?

Yes, I booted to safe mode and deleted the folder. I rebooted into safe mode and the folder was not there. However, when I rebooted to normal mode the folder came back. I deleted the folder again and ran msconfig and booted again thinking it may be in some start up program, but it still came back. I am thinking maybe something in the services that are running. I ran every scan I could find in safe mode and they all find nothing. The weird thing is, the folder is named "history" without a capital "H". All other folders have 1st letters capitalized.

Ha! I found it! Did some digging and the culprit was Bing Desktop! Happily, it is no longer on my computer. Thanks for your input.
