    %USERSPROFILE% (Home)

    I have just started to get folders appearing at various places including the desktop called %USERSPROFILE% (note the S in the middle) and they are starting to annoy me. If I delete them they just come back.

    I assume I must have done something to cause this to happen but for the life of me I don't know what. Has anybody any idea (a) what is causing it and ([img]/forums/images/smilies/cool.gif[/img] how to stop it happening.

    For the record I am the only user of my computer.

    Thanks in advance

    Bill

    It looks like a virus. Immediately update your Virus Definitions and perform full system scan.

    Thanks for replying

    I've done all that. Have Norton AV 2002 constantly running with automatic updates and a firewall in place.
