Windows XP Update creates random folders (XP HOME SR1)
<P ID="edit" class=small>(Edited by iaincraze on 07-Mar-03 17:43. Additional information come to light.)</P>I've 2 PCs (PC2 & PC3) running XP Home, peer-to-peer networked to a PC (PC1) with XP Pro, through which they share an internet connection. All PCs store their documents in mapped drive M: which points to 'My Documents' on PC1. When PC1 or PC2 install a Windows Update, an empty, randomly named, folder is created in M: - this seems to have started happening recently and for no apparent reason that I can think of. These folders are presumably just a normal part of the update process which would usually be created in the Temporary directory. It's not the end of the world if I have to remove them manually each time but if somebody knows how to get XP to revert to clearing up after itself I'd be very grateful.
