Windows 7: Can't get rid of Flicker folder

26 Jan 2010   #1

Can't get rid of Flicker folder

Hi.....I've noticed recently that an additional 'Pictures' folder keeps appearing. When I open it it's a 'flicker' folder. I never use Flicker and I've never created a folder. Each time I delete it it just comes back! It's always empty.

Maybe I should add that I got rid of Libraries and when I click on Explorer (next to the start menu) I get my user folder which contains everything I need. A tip picked up here.
I mention this in case that may be causing the problem.

Thanks for any help.

You can try this,
Eraser Freeware download and review - secure file deletion from SnapFiles
Or Malwarebytes antimalware has a "file assassin" tool to permanantly remove files.
