You have to create a folder with a very specific string of characters to get the GodMode icon to appear. Unless someone else has physical access to your computer, such a friend, that could have put it there, you have somekind of serious malware or hack. I've never heard of malware creating that folder.

Yes, absolutely. It's been a pretty well known trick, Easter Egg, whatever you want to call it, in the enthusiast arena since a little after Windows 7 was release last August. If you create a new folder with a specific name and character string, you'll get the GodMode folder, which gives you access to many configuration options in your system, all in one place. That's why I'm telling the OP that it just doesn't happen by mistake.

That's why I asked if someone had physical access to your system. I've never heard of malware creating this folder, because it is useless without access to the system, or a remote desktop app, etc. I would be very weary of how it got there, and that's why I wouldn't trust the system's integrity.

A friend of mine had something like this once. Turns out he was hacked, and someone dropped VNC on his system, and could take control anytime they wanted. When a system is compromised like that, you really only have one option.

You might want to check the network map (control panel>newtwork and sharing center>see network map), and check networks places (explorer>network). Make sure no one else is connected to your network. If anyone lives with you, then ask them if they touched your computer.

You might also want to make sure both remote access services and remote registry are disabled in services. As long as you don't stream media to anything, you won't notice any ill effects.
