Thumbs file ?

  technician 21:43 04 Jan 2005

Has anybody heard of a file called thumbs.dp. It keeps appearing in files on my daughters laptop and we think its stopping programmes from running. Has it been downloaded from the internet,it seems to be a hidden file because we've run file search and it doesn't show up on that so how can we delete it ?

Thanks guys. I knew somebody out there would have the answer.Must be something else thats stopping the programmes from running. Thinking of saving all personal files and formatting the drive to reload o.s and programmes.
