ArtAlbum Files

Has anyone else had any ArtAlbum files appear on their harddrives?
They have appeared before on my old system but have just recently done a format HDD and fresh install of XP Pro. They are in my Kazzaa download folder and the folder I store .mp3 files inafter the've been backed up onto CD-R.
At the moment I have 81 such files all with filemanes similar to:
ALthough there always seems to be one just called:
I have had these in the folder when Thunbnails view was active and they appear to be CD album covers, much like you would find in your Temp Int Files after browsing CD Wow or something.
I have also accidently double clicked on one and they just open up with picture viewer.
I have run SpyBot S&D, Avast, AVG with no errors found. I have SP1 & 2 and am up to date with ALL virus updates and MS XP updates too.

Any ideas anyone please????

If you click here and scroll down a bit it should explain what is going on.

Thanks for the explanation VoG™. Do you (or anyone else) know how I can disable this feature as I don't like it and as I have lots of files from different artists, the picture it's assigning to the folder is innapropriate?
