Have a look at this, especially the last post:

Folders and files appearing on Desktop

If someone got in there just long enough to drop a document it would reappear every time you logged on.

Okay, well, I went through it, and got nothing, it keeps telling me that the file came from my little bro comp, and I swear, I was at my little bros comp, when one of the files appeared on my desktop... how is that even possible?

Also it didn't look like they only did it on start up, at times it felt like my system was being controlled, games would start without me starting them, and folders would open.. does someone have to be near you network to gain access to it?
and if they are on my network, how do I distinguish where the messages are coming from, because, as far as I can tell, usually the only two computer running are mine and my lil bro..

Here is an update I went to best buy today, to get my sisters netbook, and they said that the files she was getting were coming from me, or at least thats what some network monitoring program was telling them... how is that possible. I never sent her anything, and now there saying that I was the one responsible for the whole mess, and just making it all up... Not that I care, but the only thing I can think of is I often let exceptions on my firewall, for false positives I usually get from keygens or well things of that nature, and yesterday I found something called ProRat, but it wasn't picked up by my AV. I only turn of my firewall and AV when I use the keygens though..

Why would you assume they are "false" positives?

When downloading keygens from people who are in the business of taking things from others, why would you assume that they wouldn't take something from you?

The only reason i thought it was a false positive is because, well, because i just got use to keygens being false positives, its not that im pirating games, I just don't like open the physical copies of my game, which, yes, I buy only physical copies, with the box and everything.

Yea I just realized that putting the firewall down was completely stupid... So with ProRat being a back door program, does that mean that they would have had to have access to my network? if so why did they never show up on my network map?

Your network map is watching the front door, not the back door.
