Hello everyone,

This morning I checked and saw a new folder named "A" on my C:\ drive.

It's quite strange as I've just recently reformatted my computer and have zone alarm internet security (7.1.248) installed, as well as sunbelt's counterspy v2. I performed scans using those two programs as well as superantispyware, avg antispyware, b-i-t-defender online scan, panda active scan online, and checked my HiJack This! log and compared it to the day after I formatted (they look the same), I also ran F-secure's antirootkit and AVG's antirootkit. The scans were done in normal and safe mode with the most updated definitions for each.

All come up clean, and I'm sure stumped... :)

This "A" folder has come up about 9 months before, but I've reformatted since then.
