My brother has Windows XP Home edition on his computer. All of a sudden, about 10min. ago, he began having folders open up on his computer. They were random folders like his music folder and game folders. When he clicks the X, they minimize to the taskbar. When he right clicks on them while in the taskbar, you don't get the regular options you do for a folder. You get file options, like open, delete, etc. Deleting will actually get rid of the folder but it'll be replaced my a new random folder. When he brings up the Task Manager, they don't appear there. I haven't investigated and looked at his processes yet. I'm about to go out to dinner, so I figured I'd post here real quick. He did a quick search on google and found one person with the same problem but the person never got a response in the forum where they posted.
Like I said, I haven't done any investigating myself. He just showed me real quick. Hopefully someone has seen something similar.
Any help is greatly appreciated. Thanks!
