ACDSeePro may be the culprit - I don't run it, haven't for ages, have u edited or saved any images with it prior to the folder appearing?
Can't see much else.

edit: as the folder is empty - enough that it has run! Try editing an image, saving and checking the folder

I only use acdsee to view images, not to edit them but tried what you proposed
but folder stayed empty.

Can't say for sure, but in the past i've known ACDsee to create folders like this.

Try checking in the options of ACDSee & All AVS progams for a "select folder" for saving option. Another words, most programs that save to there own folder will give the option of choosing a location yourself and you would enter the path. It would show the programs default path, in this case your user desktop.

You beat me to it. lol

@OP:

You might also try deleting the folder, then start opening programs up one at a time to see which one recreates it. Usually a program will recreate a missing folder upon launch.

I believe what you are looking for is in the options control panel. In "File management" under the heading of "Save Originals".

See this.

Had a look around. I have an identical looking folder with some original images in it - cant tell from the files where they came from but I'm 99% sure they are from ACDSee which I had installed for a moment a month or so ago (and promptly forgot about - FastStone Viewer is a better viewer) - if not itd PSP but u don't have that installed.
On the rule that great minds think alike - I'm with OEM! Gotta be ACDSee.
(absolute outsider - FastStone capture?) - otherwise we're all missing something obvious.
Someone else will step in and make fools of us all now!
