I would suggest that you take a long thought on BullGuard. Using my memory and not any web sites or post, BullGuard has caused some very weird problems. You just might find some more.
Thanks, and if it does cause any similar in severity issues like this I shall be switching to something else... I just find it amazing that Bullgaurd assume that your Downloads folder needs emptying, this feature has only been implemented recently in an update... Stupid idea in my opinion.

Anyway enough rambling thanks a lot.
It actually is not a bad idea. A lot of people I know leave everything they have ever downloaded in their downloads folder and never clean it out for some weird reason.

Kudos all around, especially to Jack (Layback Bear) and Ethan.

I have to spread some reputation around before I can give Jack another +rep, but you were spot on.

Thanks for posting what you found that resolved the issue, Ethan. I'll tuck that tidbit in somewhere in memory.

After a few days running without issue, or when you think enough time has passed to confirm it, could mark the thread as solved?

Reverse the change I suggested in post# 39:

Before the change, the value was 0x3
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\Attachments
ScanWithAntiVirus REG_DWORD 0x3

Yep, spot on.
Yes, I'm 100% certain it's the problem so within the next few days I shall mark as solved if nothing else happens in the meantime. No problem.

Thanks again.

My Downloads folder
Hi, My downloads folder is on my desktop AND in my documents. If I delete it on the desktop, the one in the documents also disappears. What the hell is going on? Doesn't it slow the computer if such a large file is on the desktop? How do I get rid of it from the desktop?
