looks like a problem with your OS... kena bug or worm...
suggest u run anti-virus software... if nothing shows up, then better reload ur OS

Check what is running in the background using the Task Manager.

maybe you should try to scan for spyware or adware running "hidden" from Task Manager.

Is your WinXP an SP1? If not, you might want to try updating it.

yah...
C:\downloads is a created folder... probably by some illegal software...

best advice: backup ALL data, format ur HDD

I also got a Downloads folder, own self created too. But...if he can recall if he ever downloaded those....:think: But I still think that that is not the cause.

Before doing a format and re-install, try re-installing WINDOWS only. And dun bother backing up ALL data, cos u might bring that problem over if it lies on the files.
