Weird Folders in "Documents"

In my documents folder i have my regular saved word documents, powerpoint docs etc etc. What really gets annoying is that there are sometimes folder completely irrelivant to the documents where all i want is MY saved documents. I can get rid of them by deleting them but they'll come back.

what should i do ?

Are you sure it is not a folder created by some software you have installed. Usually if you delete these they will be re-created when you run the program.

1. make a folder
2. paste the ''annoying'' files in that folder
3. place the map in a area where you NEVER come in
4. try delete the files where it was at the first time

hope it helped you
