sorry about the above link.just had a look with google myself and as VoG™ says above nobody seems to know what it is.i have xp home and just did a search for folders and had a look in the regestry and there is no reference to it at all. try running spybot click here and see if it finds anything.

thanks for that i already have spy bot and it says it is clean, i also run syware blaster which intercepts any spyware on attempted entry, what i dont understand is what made windows suddenly start looking for a non existant file

cheers
