Okay, I have noticed this, and now, its making me.. Suspicious.

Everytime I restart Windows, there is a folder that was never there, there. And the name is "New Folder"...

Okay, so... What the heck? :tazz:

Can you make a HijackThis log?

If it turns out to be malware, I will move it to the proper forum.

Can you check the settings for Fraps?
If it is set to log automatically and where?

Or disable it from Startup by fixing:
O4 - HKCU\..\Run: [Fraps] C:\FRAPS\FRAPS.EXE
with HijackThis.

If you want to put it back click Config > Backups
Select the entry you want to Restore and click Restore.

Regards,

Pieter
