Do you have the fully updated version of Norton? It may be a new virus that Norton doens tknow how to fix yet.
Otherwise, same question as jrzycrim, whats the name?

Although I don't know why it keeps coming back for you if it is. Anytime I've deleted it, it stays gone, so probably not the answer.

Turn off system restore. Delete it. Empty your Recycle Bin and turn restore back on. See if that takes care of it.

Is there anything in it, it may be the download folder for aim. someone may have renamed it and changed the dir to where it goes, it is doable.

I think StarScre4m- might be on the right track there. CHeck your preferences and see if you have a file path in the file transfer location. If so, clear it, or change it to where you want it.

I seriously doubt there's anyone here who hasn't felt that way a time or two. Glad you fixed it!
