Windows 7: Weird Folder won't uninstall, pops back up

23 Nov 2010   #1

Windows 7 64 bit Home Premium
Weird Folder won't uninstall, pops back up

Here's a weird one: At one time I had the Ask Toolbar installed and later I uninstalled it. But there is a folder left called "Ask & Record Toobar". It's empty. I delete it and after about 5 to 6 seconds it pops back up in the same place! In 25 years of this stuff I've never run into this. I have nothing running that would cause this. Any ideas?

Windows 7 Home Premium SP1, clean install, upgrade disc

Update and run a full anti virus scan
Download and run malwarebytes updated and full scan.
If all are negative try this:
Folder - Delete from Command Prompt

then this

as a last resort try this. All your temp folders will be delted, use with care. Be sure nothing that you want will be lost.
Make a system restore point before use.
