This unusual thing is happening on my pc.. When i connect my thumb drive.. Some files folder like icon with .Exe extension are getting created by itself with the name same as the folders that are present in my thumb drive.. For example if there is a folder with name 'mp3' inside that folder a file with the same name which looks a folder with size 44.48 k is getting created.. If i double click that file explorer window is getting opened showing my documents..If i open registry editor.. I am getting one error message and my pc gets restarted.. And then in the tools menu there is no folder options.. And then if i try to restore.. There is no date active in system restore.. Not in any month all has been deleted.. I dont know what to do now.. Please help me sort this out..
