Confused

OK, I need some help with this problem I have with my pictures folder. It's quite weird really, it just keeps on copying itself onto my desktop and in my user folder. The copied folder doesn't actually contain any of my pictures - it is empty apart from the shortcut to sample pictures. Every time I delete the copied folders, they just copy themselves again and it is getting really annoying. Please I really need some help with this it is getting really annoying!!! Thanks

This sounds like some kind or virus or 'Malware' is doing this strange stuff to your computer.

Try downloading and installing Microsoft Security Essentials:

Then, run a 'Full Scan', to find and eliminate any viruses on your system.
