Help! My computer Folder

  Stan87 11:57 10 Jul 2009

Hi, i have this problem since yesterday. It seems like "my computer" folder pop ups pretty often to interrupt my games or projects. And lately ive discovered that it will also appear if i hit ESC. Have any idea whats going on?

Sounds like spyware to me. Do you have any ggod anti-spyware software installed?

System restore?

yeah i have malwarebytes-antimalware installed. Lavasofts Ad-aware. But none of them seem to help :/

The last time I came accross something akin to that it was a faulty keyboard which whenever you pressed the spacebar up popped the Search For Files and Folders box

TOSH may have the answer. Could be crumbs/dirt in the keyboard. Turn it upside down and tap it to dislodge any.

If that isn't it then:
Better do a manual scan with these three (they don't affect existing antivirus as they are malware scanners)
Malwarebytes click here
Superantispyware click here
Asquared click here
make sure to get the free versions and update them before scanning

Install Spyware blocker Spywareblaster
click here (manual update needed ).

You have not told us which antivirus program you have.

Eventually i really turn my keyboard ard and shook it hard. piece of unknown object dropped. and it fixed the problem. Thanks for the useful programs against spyware too! :D
